Belly button surgery is a cosmetic procedure used to improve a belly button that is puffy, protruding, too entrenched, or have an unusual shape. These can be repaired. Sometimes the deformities are associated with hernias. Some insurance companies will pay for the hernia repair and correction of the deformity. Woodglen Aesthetics utilizes this procedure to create symmetrical and enhance belly button appearance.
During belly button surgery, excess tissue is removed through tiny incisions made inside the belly button. Then, the belly button is reshaped based on the patient’s specifications. The procedure typically takes about an hour to complete and is often performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthetic and IV sedation.
Depending on the physical demand of the job and the complexity of the belly button surgery, patients may be able to return to work as soon as they feel ready. Patients should expect slight bruising, soreness, and inflammation for a few days following the procedure. Woodglen Aesthetics can also provide pain medication prescriptions if needed. Belly button surgery scars typically diminish within a few months or hidden since incisions are carefully placed inside the belly button.
