What’s Up with Your Belly Button after a Tummy Tuck?

TummyTuck - Kramer - March2022

So, you’re gearing up for a tummy tuck. Congratulations! This is a big step to take in improving your abdominal muscles, contouring your body and boosting your self-esteem. But with any big step, it’s easy to worry about the unknowns. For example, will your tummy tuck belly button match your expectations?

How Tummy Tucks Change the Belly Button

Every abdominoplasty procedure is unique, just like you. However, in most cases, the skin will be pulled tighter and excess skin eliminated. Overall, this looks very natural, but without the right approach, there is one feature that can give away the fact that you had a little something done: the belly button.

This is logical, when you think about it. Pulling the skin means pulling on the belly button. And depending on how the skin is pulled, the belly button can become long, wide or even overly large and round. It can also change position on the abdomen.

Can You Still Get a Natural-Looking Belly Button?

Absolutely! And you don’t need to resort to the tummy tuck belly button marble trick to get it. A qualified plastic surgeon will be able to create a designer belly button as part of your tummy tuck, ensuring it looks natural, and maybe even better than it did before surgery.
