Tummy Tuck Surgery: What Happens to Your Belly Button?

Woman worried about belly button before Tummy Tuck surgery in Charlottesville, VA.

Many patients turn to tummy tuck surgery at our Charlottesville, VA, practice to create a toned, contoured stomach. However, removing loose, saggy skin and unwanted fat can also change how your belly button looks. During a tummy tuck, a small incision is made around the belly button to free it from the surrounding skin. As the skin is pulled downward, a new opening for the belly button is created, and the tissue is carefully sewn into place. Our doctors know that an attractive result is all about paying attention to the details, especially the belly button. We hide all incisions in hard-to-see locations during our tummy tuck procedures and sculpt the surrounding soft tissues to create a flattering, natural look.

One of the perks of a tummy tuck is gaining a beautiful belly button. If you’re in the Charlottesville area and would like to learn more about body contouring procedures, please request a consultation online.
