How a Tummy Tuck Targets Your Belly Button
During the course of a tummy tuck, Dr. Keusch will essentially “release” it from its skin, which is a necessary step for removing excess skin that sags around the stomach.
Once the excess skin is trimmed away, Dr. Keusch will re-create the look of your belly button. Best of all, the stitches are hidden in your belly button, to reduce the visibility of the surgical scar.
What About a Mini Tummy Tuck?
While a traditional tummy tuck focuses on your entire abdomen, the mini tummy tuck targets excess skin that’s located underneath your belly button. For this reason, the mini tummy tuck won’t change the appearance of your belly button.
How Will My Belly Button Look After a Tummy Tuck?
A traditional tummy tuck will create a smaller and more youthful-looking belly button. Your belly button will continue to look smaller as you heal from your surgery, with optimal tummy tuck results visible about three to four months after surgery.
