What can be done to lower your bellybutton after a Tummy Tuck
Thank you for for your question.
If you don't like the appearance of your bellybutton after your tummy tuck, there are multiple things that can be done. A scar revision is possible. An umbilicoplasty where we reorganize the skin around the bellybutton may help as well. If you have enough looseness in your lower abdomen, the flap may be lowered once again and a brand-new bellybutton can be constructed.
Umbilicus too high
There are multiple reasons why this could happen
and you are still early in your recovery. I suggest to
discuss your concerns with your board certified plastic
surgeon and see what he recommends. An option can
be excising the umbilicus and incorporate the incision with
the vertical scar follow by creating a new "belly button" at
the desire location. Best wishes.
