What are my options to get rid of loose skin around belly button? (Photo)
Doctor Answers (1)
An umbilicoplasty will improve the appearance of your belly button and can be done as a minor procedure under local anaesthesia. However there is a limit about how much can be corrected through this - it is difficult to know without examining a person whether umbilicoplasty will completely correct the problem. You are correct in assuming that a major problem can often be corrected better as a part of a tummy tuck procedure. However if you have realistic goals, a lot can be achieved through the simpler procedure.
Hope this helps.
