Umbilicoplasty, also known as belly button surgery is a cosmetic surgery procedure to change the position, size and shape of your belly button. It’s quite common, after pregnancy or as a result of a hernia around the belly button, that the attachment of the belly button to the deeper tissue is lost. This results in what is commonly known as the ‘outie belly button’. For some, the unsightly appearance of the belly button can be very visible even from under clothing and can cause embarrassment and anxiety. Some umbilical hernias can be serious if not treated by Umbilicoplasty so it’s best to get it checked out.
