A navel may leave an unattractive scar if the umbilical cord was cut badly by the doctor at birth. Or it may be removed for personal aesthetic reasons. People may also not want to deal with navel lint, the smell, and having to clean it.
The popularity of cosmetic umbilicoplasty, otherwise known as belly button surgery, has skyrocketed in the past few years. Belly button surgery can be performed at the same time as a tummy tuck or other cosmetic procedure, and is sometimes done in conjunction with hernia repair.
Belly Button Sculpture is included in the price of Tummy Tuck Abdominoplasty when both are done at the same time.
Whatever the shape and size of your belly button, an umbilicoplasty, or cosmetic navel surgery, can transform it into almost any other shape and size \Belly button surgery can turn almost any shape or size of navel into almost any other shape/size, and in many cases, belly button surgery patients are attempting to create a more youthful looking midriff, hoping that their belly button surgery will either result in an entirely different navel from the one they had growing up, or are using the belly button surgery to reverse changes brought on by weight gain, pregnancy, or age.
