As the clothing style of people has changed in recent years, the shape of the naval is also gradually becoming a concern for those aspiring beauty, it is even considered as a sign of sexiness, so belly button surgery becomes indispensable for a perfect stature of body.

Umbilicoplasty is the technical term used to describe cosmetic surgery procedures that are performed on the navel. When a woman becomes pregnant, an umbilical cord attaches to the fetus to allow for proper transport of nutrients, which is how the fetus is fed. When the baby is delivered, the umbilical cord has to be cut to disconnect the baby from the mother. As a result of this, a scar, known as the belly button, is formed on the baby’s navel area. In most cases, the belly button heals with a relatively normal appearance. For others, however, the belly button can become a source of embarrassment and unsightliness.

If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your belly button, you may wish to consider undergoing umbilicoplasty.

It will also repair any skin hangover left by pregnancy, extreme weight loss, or navel piercings, and is often performed as part of a “combination procedure,” usually with a tummy tuck or any other abdominal surgery.

Belly button surgery is mainly concentrated on the correction of a congenital or an acquired navel deformity due to an umbilical hernia or pregnancy.

The causes of a navel deformity include congenital abdominal muscle weakness, umbilical prominence, navel inflammation, navel ring infection which should be first inspected by a physician before choosing an appropriate surgery to correct it.


Umbilicoplasty is a safe and quick procedure. In just one hour, the process requires the patient to receive local anesthesia, which is usually placed on the stomach/navel area. In some cases, patients may also be given a sedative which induces drowsiness.
