Optimizing Belly Button shape during Tummy Tuck Surgery

Optimizing belly button shape during tummy tuck surgery is critical to a successful outcome. If you are thinking about wearing a two piece bikini to show off your new belly, it is extremely important to have an aesthetically pleasing “innie” belly button

The “innie” belly button refers to a newly created bellybutton, called the neoumbilius, that has its ring sewn in the shadows of your belly button stalk. This is in contrast to an “outie” belly button with the neoumbilicus visible as below:

In order to provide an aesthetically pleasing “innie” belly button, your surgeon must accurately identify the location of your belly button stalk in order to optimally mark and create your neoumbilicus. Dr. Mowlavi has developed and published the “Umbilicator” which is a stainless steel marble that has been designed to be temporarily fixed to your umbilical stalk in order assist with locating your belly button.

Only with accurate location of the umbilical stalk is it possible to create a neoumbilicus that will provide an aesthetically pleasing belly button. Please see the aesthetically superior belly button shape following a routine tummy tuck surgery performed using Dr. Mowlavi’s “Umbilicator”
