FAQs

WHAT IS BELLY BUTTON SURGERY?

Belly button surgery, also referred to as umbilicoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery that is performed to enhance the appearance of the belly button. Many patients experience changes in the belly button after pregnancy or weight loss. Others may simply be unhappy with the appearance of their belly button. In either case, belly button surgery can adjust the shape and size of the belly button to fulfill a patient’s cosmetic goals. This procedure can also be combined with treatments such as a tummy tuck.

HOW MUCH DOES BELLY BUTTON SURGERY COST?

The cost of your belly button surgery at Eko Plastic Surgery will vary depending on the treatment plan we develop for you. During your consultation, Dr. Eko will discuss your cosmetic goals and treatment needs in order to determine the treatment approach that best suits you. For this reason, we will not be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment until you had the chance to come in and discuss your treatment goals with Dr. Eko.

WHAT IS THE BELLY BUTTON SURGERY PROCEDURE LIKE?

The belly button surgery is a fairly simple procedure, and it is usually performed under general anesthesia and on an outpatient basis. During the procedure, an incision will be made in the belly button, where it will be well-hidden. Through this incision, Dr. Eko will remove excess skin and manipulate the remaining skin to create the desired results. Belly button surgery typically takes about an hour to perform.

WHAT IS THE RECOVERY LIKE AFTER BELLY BUTTON SURGERY?

After belly button surgery, there is an initial recovery period of about one week. During this time, you can expect swelling, bruising, and varying discomfort. Still, most patients are able to return to work and other activities in just a few days. It will be important for you to avoid any strenuous activities such as exercise for at least a month after your surgery.

WHAT KIND OF RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM BELLY BUTTON SURGERY?

The results from your belly button surgery will be visible immediately, although you may not be able to notice the full results of treatment until swelling and other side effects begin to fade. The results from belly button surgery are permanent, but it is important to note that significant changes in weight may alter your results.
