I Have Loose Skin After Vaser Lipo and Around my Belly Button a Tattoo I Hate.

Is there a way of removing a tattoo (which is all the way around my belly button, about 3inches in length and width) along with my loose skin from my belly and creating a realistic belly button. So i am left with a tattoo free, firm looking stomach. The thing is my muscles are very strong underneath the loose skin, would not need them tightening.

The only way to remove both the loose skin and an unwanted tattoo around the belly button would be to consider an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck; this procedure will remove both the unwanted skin and tattoo while greatly improving the appearance of the abdomen; if your muscles are already tight, you can choose to have a skin excision procedure only; this will also provide less pain and downtime post-operatively
