Constricted Belly Button Repair
It is possible to repair a narrowed or constricted belly button by a minor surgical procedure under local anesthesia. Most plastic surgeons are able to do this in a treatment room or small office based surgical suite.
If the original opening was made too small or of the wound did not heal properly, constriction can occur. An infection is also a common cause. A repair is done for more than aesthetic reasons. A narrow umbilicus is difficult to clean and will be prone to future infections as well. Once it is healed, you should seek out a surgeon who is able to repair it. You should have very little down time. Good luck.
