Belly Button Correction or Navel Correction

The science bit

What is Umbilicoplasty?

Umbilicoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to modify and improve the appearance of the belly button. Clients come to us because their belly button sticks out, is unusually large, or includes unsightly extra skin. Your navel may have changed shape or become enlarged because of weight loss. It might have become herniated through childbirth. You might even have lost your navel altogether because of surgery or an injury.


What Can I Expect From Belly Button Correction?

We can perform this surgery as a day case under local anaesthetic. If you’re also having a tummy tuck at the same time, you will need a general anaesthetic. Then we either re-shape your navel or reposition it to create a more pleasing aesthetic result.

What is the Recovery Time from Umbilicoplasty?

If you simply have a belly button correction there is very little recovery time, but we do apply a small dressing. Your stitches will be removed after 7-10 days, and we recommend avoiding strenuous activities like sports or swimming for at least two weeks, maybe as long as four weeks.

How Long Do the Effects Last?

The effects of the surgery last a long time, but sometimes your belly button may need some slight adjustments, something that’s common with all types of surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are the Side Effects of Umbilicoplasty?
You may experience some redness and soreness, but you can take painkillers to alleviate it. While it is rare to get an infection, it makes sense to keep the area clean and dry.
What Are the Alternatives to Navel Correction?
There is a non-surgical option, and it might be suitable for you. It’s something we can discuss together at your initial consultation and examination. The alternative to surgery involves either dermal fillers or a plasma pen, sometimes a combination of both.
How Will I Feel?
Once your belly button is neat and tidy again, you’ll feel so much less self-conscious. Some of our clients say they feel more confident in swimwear, and in more revealing clothes, and some also feel happier when being intimate with their partner.
