Looking to correct the appearance of loose stomach skin after pregnancy or major weight loss?
Then it’s time to introduce yourself to tummy tuck surgery!
Also known as an abdominoplasty, this cosmetic procedure helps remove excess tummy skin that may not have “snapped back” after significant weight fluctuations or pregnancy. What’s more, the tummy tuck can even get rid of a stubborn stomach pooch that won’t respond to even your best diet and exercise habits.
But what exactly happens to your belly button after a tummy tuck?
How a Tummy Tuck Changes Your Belly Button’s Appearance
The main goal of the tummy tuck is to create a more contoured and youthful stomach; that means minimizing a stubborn stomach pooch, as well as removing excess skin and repositioning the belly button for a younger appearance.
Yes, you read that right. The belly button can be significantly impacted by major tummy tuck surgery; during the procedure, the belly button is “released” when excess skin is removed from the stomach. Once the skin is readjusted to its final position, your plastic surgeon will recreate the appearance of a belly button. The stitches are placed inside the belly button, making it almost impossible to see.
Your Belly Button After the Tummy Tuck
After the tummy tuck surgery, your belly button will begin to appear smaller and tighter; these results will continue to improve over the course of three to five months. Your final belly button results will look smaller, firmer, and more youthful…
The perfect complement to your brand-new stomach!
