Many women are looking to make a new kind of change to their stomachs with the help of plastic surgery: belly button enhancement. The navel area has caused insecurity when it comes to wearing a cute bathing suit or a dress with a cutout in the summertime; cosmetic surgery is helping to minimize this issue for a number of women.
Belly Button Enhancement
In fact, the reason why many women go looking for tummy tucks, as Dr. Steve Davis, a plastic surgeon in New Jersey, told ABC Action News, is because they don’t like their navels. “You don’t have any loose skin there, what’s really bothering you?” he asks his patients. “And they always point to the belly button.”
The procedure can also hide stretch marks and scars or remove stretched out skin, which are some of the other concerns a patient may bring to their consultation appointment. As stated by Dr. Davis, any of these procedures can include a reshaping of the belly button. Many women want their navel to be more vertical in shape.
The surgery itself generally costs about a thousand dollars, and entails the reshaping and other minor changes to this small area. If patients desire more intensive work in the abdominal area, the price will go up depending on what their aesthetic goals are.
Improving this small but central area actually isn’t very difficult and only takes about an hour in the surgeon’s office using local anesthesia. And most can go out in a bikini or a crop top about a week or so after the procedure – as long as they remember to wear plenty of sunblock.
