Having an unsightly belly button can affect your self-confidence and appearance. Belly button revision surgery can give the belly button a more natural appearance. This procedure is also commonly known as umbilicoplasty and is common for individuals who have undergone previous abdominoplasty with unpleasant results or those who have scarring from a previous piercing.

What is Belly Button Revision?

Your belly button’s shape may change after a piercing or abdominoplasty procedure causing the belly button to appear misshaped or unnatural. Regardless of the etiology, a procedure can be used to improve the aesthetic appearance of your belly button. 


Recovery Time

2-3 Weeks

Anesthesia Type

Local Anesthesia / IV Sedation

Belly Button Revision Candidates

Candidates for belly button revision include those who are unhappy with the appearance of their belly button. Many candidates have experienced changes in their belly button due to previous surgery or piering of the area.  To be considered a good candidate for Belly Button Revision you should be in overall good health, a non-smoker, have a BMI of 30 or less and be at a stable weight for at least 6 months.  If the cause or the change of appearance is due to a hernia, a consultation with a general surgeon will be recommended. 

The Belly Button Revision Procedure

The belly button revision is done under local or IV sedation. Dr. D’Agostino, our double board-certified plastic surgeon, will decide the best way to correct the appearance of your belly button and create a more natural look. Incisions will be closed with absorbable sutures.

Belly Button Revision Recovery

Recovering after your umbilicoplasty procedure is relatively easy. You can return to work within a few days and need to avoid any physical activity for a few weeks. Heavy lifting and sun exposure should be avoided to allow the scar to heal and fade properly. You may experience bruising and discomfort in your abdominal area. However, this is manageable with medication. Following Dr. D’Agostino’s aftercare instructions are essential to help your body optimally heal.

I knew two things were most important to me when looking for the right surgeon: the results and bedside manner. I feel so grateful to have hit the jackpot with Dr D who gave me the BEST of both of those. From the first moment I met her in the consult, I knew she was different from most doctors. She is incredibly kind, sweet, patient, and attentive. She made me feel cared for in a way that’s hard to put into words, but when you’re preparing for a big surgery, it’s the exact type of energy that puts you at total ease. Dr D not only answered all my questions, on multiple different occasions, leading up to surgery but she was extremely patient with them all. 

I am extremely pleased with Dr. D’Agostino.

I am extremely pleased with Dr. D’Agostino. She is always on time, personable and kind! She walked me through every step of my procedure, removed all of my cancer and did an amazing job. My scar is barely noticeable at just a couple weeks after my procedure. I will definitely be back for any other cosmetic needs.
