Many women consider any surgical operation because it is one of the fastest ways to improve the body in a safe manner. Any surgery includes incision, making scars unavoidable. Aside from the scars that patients will get after the procedure, they also have other concerns which include the look of the belly button. It is mentioned before that the belly button is positioned in the midline of the body. However, it is not always the case since it is normal for the body to have asymmetries, including the position of the belly button.
Patients should understand that the belly button can get distorted due to some reasons. This may include pregnancy and weight gain. For starters, you can have a hernia. The belly button can also be stretched significantly, making it look aesthetically unpleasant. When performing tummy tucks, one of the things that should be given careful attention is the belly button due to its position at the center of the abdomen. Some surgeons disregard the belly button when performing a tummy tuck, causing it to look distorted after the operation.
In post-surgery, belly buttons tend to look round, large, stretched, and hollow. While abdominal scars can be hidden underneath clothes, a distorted belly button is difficult to conceal. Worry not because they can be easily recreated by fixing the abdominal flap that causes the distortion, as well as adjusting the depth to make it look more natural. If you want to be satisfied with the results after the surgery, you need to discuss this matter to your surgeon since some surgeons do not pay attention to this. Paying attention to the belly button is crucial when it comes to determining the success of a tummy tuck. It is also important if you will tell your surgeons regarding your expectations so that he can correct you especially if your expectations are not realistic.
