Is the Belly Button Removed During Tummy Tuck Surgery?

Featured Image

Of all body regions, the stomach or abdominal area is the one that gives people the most trouble. A nice midsection is associated with overall health and athleticism, yet many things may get in the way. Pregnancy, the inevitable effects of aging, and significant weight loss can leave our tummies saggier than we'd like.

Luckily, you don't have to settle for excess skin or a less-than-pleasing appearance. At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, we're dedicated to helping Atlanta-area residents look their best through clinically proven procedures, like the ever-popular tummy tuck. So, if you'd like to ditch the sit-ups, get in touch with us today to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang.

Have no fear; we take the utmost care to ensure your belly button looks as natural as ever after your slimming tummy tuck

Many patients are curious about what happens to their belly button during a tummy tuck. Does it get removed? Will it look different? Will it be changed in any way? If this is one of your worries, we'd like to reassure you that your abdominal aesthetics can be improved.

The location of the incisions is patient-dependent, and we'll help find the best option for you based on your unique personal factors. It's possible that the incision will not be made anywhere near the belly button. Or it may be through the belly button or possibly lower down by the pubic region so Dr. Mang can most effectively conceal it.

Based on whichever procedure proves most effective for you, the location of the belly button may or may not change. Or, our Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery experts may have to do some slight repositioning to ensure that your results look natural. We can offer more specific information once we've conducted our comprehensive consultation.

We offer various types of tummy tucks based on your unique needs

Generally, you'll receive one of the three main types of tummy tucks: mini, full, or extended. The scope of each one differs, and it depends on physiological factors, and the amount of loose skin and fat present. In addition, the incision sites vary, which is one of the main factors affecting the belly button. Some may not affect it, as we tighten the skin below or above it.

But no matter which technique ends up being best for you, one thing's certain: we'll do everything in our power to give you optimal, natural-looking results you can be proud of every time you glance in the mirror.
