Have you ever thought about the little details that make a world of difference when it comes to plastic surgery? One of these crucial elements is the formation of the belly button during a tummy tuck. Let’s delve into this intricate process, as explained by a leading plastic surgeon in Tampa, FL, Dr. Effie Politis.

Natural Results: More than Just a Flatter Abdomen

When you opt for a tummy tuck, you’re not just seeking a flatter abdomen; you desire a natural-looking result. This means every feature of your tummy, including the belly button, should look untouched, as if you were born with it. The belly button, small yet significant, becomes a central focus in the tummy tuck procedure.

Behind the Scenes: Dr. Politis’ Technique

In a recent Instagram post, Dr. Politis gave a sneak peek into how this is achieved. The process begins with a small incision around your existing belly button, ensuring the stalk (the base) remains untouched. As the skin is pulled downwards, the original place of the belly button might get lost. A new opening is artfully and meticulously created for the belly button. With delicate precision, it’s sewn into place, ensuring a natural look and secure positioning.
