Are you unhappy with the look of your belly button? Let Dr. Rodriguez fix it with cosmetic navel reconstruction. Belly button surgery, or an umbilicoplasty, is a relatively simple plastic surgery procedure that is used to change the appearance of your belly button. It is performed in the doctor’s office in about an hour. It only requires local anesthesia and most patients are able to drive themselves home after the procedure.
There are many reasons people are unhappy with their belly button and decide to fix it with cosmetic navel reconstruction. They include:
The belly button has been misshapen from birth and they don’t like the way it looks.
The belly button has changed shape with age.
The belly button cannot be pierced because it is an ‘outie’ or is deformed.
The belly button was deformed from an injury or prior surgery.
A tummy tuck changed the appearance of the belly button.
The belly button has changed shape from weight loss or weight gain.
The belly button has changed shape due to pregnancy or a Caesarian section.
Most patients who undergo cosmetic navel reconstruction are looking for a more vertical, almost oval shaped belly button. With umbilicoplasty, Dr. Rodriguez can turn your belly button into almost any shape or size that you want. Additionally, this procedure may be covered by your insurance plan.
