Belly Button(Umbilicoplasty) TREATMENT OVERVIEW

Belly Button Surgery or Umbilicoplasty is an operation to reshape and improve the appearance of the navel.

Whether they’re innies or outies, belly buttons vary enormously in shape and size. Pregnancy, weight loss, and age can all affect the umbilicus. Belly Button Surgery can change the shape of the navel, treat any sagging or stretching, and repair any underlying hernias.

If your belly button is affecting your body image and self-esteem, Belly Button Surgery at Bella Vou can help. The operation can improve the appearance and treat Belly Button hernia or umbilical hernia so that you can show off your midriff with confidence.

It is very unusual for the problem to reoccur, but during subsequent pregnancies, the internal pressure can make a belly button to revert to an 'outie' again.

Step 1. Free, no-obligation consultation

Bella Vou offers every client a free consultation with an expert, accredited cosmetic surgeon with no obligation to proceed to treatment. The consultation is an opportunity to discuss any concerns you have with your belly button, the results you want to achieve, and whether surgery can help you reach those goals. The surgeon will show you before and after photos to help with your decision.

Bella Vou will always give you an honest and impartial professional opinion. Mr Amir Nakhdjevani says:

‘We make sure that we advise people correctly about whether surgery is right for them. We treat everyone as if they were our family. We might turn people away, suggest alternative treatments, or we may suggest that they go to a different specialist at another establishment. If someone is uncertain about an operation, we're happy to see them several times, without a consultation charge. At Bella Vou, we never pressurise people or try to sell procedures. It's always about giving an honest opinion and honest advice.’

Step 2. Meet your surgeon

You will be offered an appointment to meet your surgeon again before proceeding to surgery. This will give you a chance to find out more about the procedure, your recovery, and to ask any questions you may have. The consultant will talk you through the operation and take time to address all your concerns.

Step 3. Preparation for Belly Button Surgery

Careful pre-operative preparation can reduce the risk of infection and improve your recovery.

You should shower daily and stop any aspirin or anti-inflammatory medication, which can increase the risk of bleeding. It is important to stop smoking cigarettes and e-cigarettes, which can slow down healing.

On the day of your Belly Button Surgery, you’ll be personally welcomed to Bella Vou, given a gown to wear and escorted to the state-of-the-art operating theatre. As you will be awake throughout the surgery, you will be greeted by your surgeon and can chat or choose the music to listen to during the procedure.

Step 4. What happens during Belly Button Surgery

The specialist plastic surgeon carefully cleanses the skin, then makes a small incision in the skin around the rim of the belly button.

The surgeon will use different techniques, depending on your umbilicus and the results you want, Any excess skin can be removed, the belly button and any hernias are repaired, and the navel can be reshaped or repositioned.

The surgeon will then pull the skin tight and suture the incision closed using absorbable stitches, which do not require removal.

Step 5. Recovery from Belly Button Surgery

You will be able to go home on the day of the procedure. There are no drains or drips; the wound will be covered by a simple dressing.

One of the Bella Vou team will give you a call the day after surgery to make sure you’re well and to answer any questions. Most people can get back at work in 2-3 days following Belly Button Surgery. However, it's essential to take it easy and avoid too much midriff movement. This area is vulnerable to stretching, which can slow down healing and make the scar wider and more visible.

The staff at Bella Vou will carefully monitor your recovery. You should leave the dressing on for one week, at which stage our nurse and wound care specialist will check the scar. You should avoid exercise for two weeks, then gradually increase activity. At around six weeks, your surgeon will check your progress, but if you’re worried, the staff are always on hand to answer questions on the phone or in person.
