UMBILICOPLASTY – Belly Button Surgery
What people used to hide is now considered sexy, fashionable & flauntable!
Belly button surgery (Umbilicoplasty) is one of the most popular surgeries being performed today. Since clothing fashions changed over this past decade – tops have gotten shorter – pants have shrunk lower below the waist – and the naval has been left totally and fashionably exposed. Not everyone is born with a good looking belly button and others experience change as part of normal ageing, pregnancy, weight gain or loss, hernias and hernia surgery or trauma. An unattractive belly button bulges, is horizontal in shape and may have other distortions. A good looking umbilicus is small, vertical and well seated into the tummy. Umbilicoplasty safely and predictably corrects the distortions and results in an attractive, natural looking belly button – that will allow you to wear the fashions of your choice and show off your new navel. If you have no interest in exposure, but are concerned about and bothered by your navel, surgery can correct your concerns easily, safely and inconspicuously.
“All cosmetic surgery should be functional-and all reconstructive surgery should be aesthetic – and look as natural as possible.” Steven Davison, MD

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR UMBILICOPLASTY?
Any person who is unhappy with the size, shape and appearance of their belly button could be an ideal candidate for Dr. Davison’s umbilicoplasty surgery. You should be in otherwise good health and have realistic expectations.
Your surgeon should invest the time to sit down with you face-to-face during your consultation. Dr. Davison believes listens carefully to each patient – every time.
YOUR INITIAL CONSULTATION WITH DR. DAVISON:
Dr. Davison believes this time spent with you is critical. It is during the consultation that he comes to fully understand your concerns, evaluates them correctly and is then able to develop the treatment plan that is right for you.
Working through very small, imperceptible incisions made deep in the umbilicus, Dr. Davison will remove excess fat and tissue, correct bulging, repair any small hernias that may exist, and then reshape the belly button into a more attractive, normal looking one. Most patients are able to return to work or low-keyed activity soon after surgery, but this depends upon the extensiveness of your surgery. A little soreness and slight bruising may occur. This is normal and resolves on its own in a few days
