An belly button is preventing you from social outings? We can reconstruct the navel thereby reconstructing your entire self image. The umbilicus or belly button is the scar from the umbilical cord that fed a person while he/she was in the mother's womb. It is the way in which the person skin is attached to the underlying muscle.Whilst of minimal functional importance, the umbilicus is a key aesthetic landmark of the anterior abdominal wall and its absence or distortion is a frequent cause for concern and patient complaint. For such an anatomically simple structure, the plethora of techniques described indicates either an unappreciated complexity or the lack of a universally appropriate procedure.

However, some people need to have their navels re-shaped. They may include:
* No belly button at all or a badly shaped navel from birth, or as a result of some sort of trauma or faulty surgery in the past;
* A small hernia which may stick out in a little lump next to the belly button;
* Flat- for elongated navels which some people like to have made rounder. It is believed that a circular belly button has a younger look to it than a longer, flatter kind
* A belly button that is shifted to one side, sticks out, or is hidden by folds of flesh or wrinkles.

How much time is required for an umbilicus treatment? The procedure takes around an hour, depending upon the type of correction required and the extent of the complication of the respective patient.

Do I require to get admitted or is it an Outpatient procedure?
It is an outpatient procedure wherein the patient can be immediately released.

What are the side effects of umbilicus treatment?
Bruising and swelling after belly button surgery is usually quite light and short-lived.
Side effects, although rare, can include infection, a reaction to the anaesthesia, blood or fluid collection underneath the skin, numbness and an irregular or a “lop-sided” appearance of the belly button (which may require further surgery to correct).

How long do the results of an umbilicus treatment last?
In most of the cases, the reconstructed navel is usually permanent

How much time does it take to recover from umbilicus treatment?
Depending on the nature of your operation, you may be released from hospital after only a few hours.
Umbilicoplasty recovery generally takes a week or so; but you can usually return to light activities the day after your operation.
