Can my stomach be repaired with a belly button?
Thank you for your question and photo. One may be candidate for scar revision and creation of a new umbilicus. I would start with a face to face consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who has experience in this area. During your visit your surgeon should be evaluating your health to determine if you are a good surgical candidate and examining your tissues to get a sense of what type of procedure your tissues will allow. Only with a hands on exam can this be determined. Once an exam and opinion is rendered then you can decide if surgery is right for you. Good luck.
Reconstructing the belly button ( umbilicus) is possible as well as revising the midline scar of the abdomen. Recommend evaluation by a board certified plastic surgeon. You may require more than one procedure to achieve the desired result. Best, Dr. Yegiyants.
