There is an interesting article on MSNBC.com that discusses the recent trend of cosmetic belly button surgeries. More and more people are undergoing umbilicoplasties to turn their ‘outie’ into an ‘innie.’ These surgeries are basically belly button hernia repairs and have been done for years, typically by general surgeons, not plastic surgeons.
Here is a photo of a patient of mine, pre-tummy tuck, who has the typical post-pregnancy changes of excess skin around the belly button. Tummy tucks can improve this appearance, but result in a circular scar around it.
Octomom claimed that her post-baby flat tummy was plastic surgery-free. Her belly button tells the real story, though. See her photo HERE.
