I have a vascular birthmark on belly button. Where will it be there after a tummy tuck surgery? (photos)
Doctor Answers 5
Your birthmark does not appear to be within your belly button but rather next to it. It is difficult to say whether it will remain following a tummy tuck but if it does it will likely be very low on your abdomen. An examination by a plastic surgeon can give you some idea of the final position although it may not be possible to predict with certainty until the procedure is performed.

- The part of the birthmark that is actually in the navel will remain.
- The part outside - that is, most of it - will either be removed completely or will be moved far down on your tummy to the lower abdomen.
- If you don't like the birthmark and it remains, laser treatment is very effective - and can be done 6 months or more after your surgery but be sure to ask your surgeon before having this done.
