Umbilicoplasty, or belly button surgery, is a procedure that changes the appearance or shape of the belly button. It can be performed alone or as part of another surgery such as a tummy tuck or a body lift. Umbilicoplasty can help to repair the aesthetics of the navel after pregnancy, unsatisfied results from a previous tummy tuck, or a naturally protruding “outie” belly button. The navel can also change after significant weight loss or if the patient has experienced an abdominal hernia.
