Can a "floated" belly button be lowered after a Modified or Mini-Abdominoplasty
A Modified or Mini-Abdominoplasty focuses on the lower part of the abdomen, and sometimes the upper abdomen is not completely addressed with this operation. A significant amount of skin laxity above the belly button cannot always be completely tightened with this operation, as "floating" a belly button too low looks very strange and cannot be fixed. Your belly button should be level with the top of your pelvic bones above your hips (you can put your hands on your sides and feel the top of the pelvic bones) and this can be checked in a mirror by standing very straight and looking at the height of your belly button as compared to your pelvic bones. I would suggest waiting several months to see how your skin naturally contracts after your surgery and then discuss your concerns with your Plastic Surgeon and look at your before and after photos.
