Tummy tuck constricted belly button. Houston, Austin, Dallas, San Antonio

Author: Wilberto Cortes, M.D.

Hi, this is Dr. Hourglass, and welcome to another video in our channel Star Bodies. Today we are going to discuss the constricted belly button. In this channel, we discuss everything you need to know to get that star body that you want. The tummy tuck is one of the most common aesthetic procedures to enhance the abdomen.

With this technique, the excess skin below the belly button is removed, the muscle of the abdomen are tightened, the excess fat is removed, and it will result in a lower scar that you can hide under the underwear. If we go further with the hourglass technique that I developed, we will do liposuction to make your waist smaller and fat transfer to the hips for the ultimate hourglass shape. As with any other procedure in cosmetic surgery, complications can occur. One of the commonly seen complications of the tummy tuck is what we call a constricted belly button, which means that the belly button gets very small.

Let me explain why this happens. When a new belly button is created, an incision is performed where the new belly button is going to be located. The belly button is pulled through this new hole and sutured. But because the belly button has a circular geometry, the forces of healing tend to be directed toward the midline. As the scar heals, it tends to contract, due to the fibroblast, the collagen, and the entire new scar that is forming around the belly button.

As the scar gets contracted, it actually diminishes the size of the belly button. If this occurs for you, it is nothing to be alarmed about. The many treatments for constricted belly buttons include Kenalog injection, which is a steroid; placing a stent to keep the belly button open; and scar revision. Some levels of belly button constriction occur in a lot of patients. The problem is when the belly button gets so small that it actually obliterates the belly button completely. In this video, we discussed the constricted belly button. Next week, we will discuss the perception of the patient when it comes to surgical results.
