Welcome to North Raleigh Plastic Surgery. Our team of highly trained and compassionate healthcare professionals deliver excellent surgical results in a state-of-the-art medical facility.

If the shape of your belly button makes you self-conscious, umbilicoplasty, sometimes called “belly button surgery”, is a minimally-invasive surgery to reshape your navel. Pregnancy, piercings, weight gain or loss, and genetics can all impact the shape of your belly button, sometimes in a way that makes you feel insecure. With an umbilicoplasty, Dr. Ortiz, a board-certified plastic surgeon, can help you feel more confident.

What is Belly Button Surgery?

Belly button surgery, or umbilicoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure performed on patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their belly button. Many people seek belly button surgery because they want to change their “outie” belly button to an “innie.” Others have belly button surgery to restore the shape of their navel after pregnancy, dramatic weight loss, or an umbilical hernia. During an umbilicoplasty, which is performed under general anesthesia, Dr. Ortiz will make small incisions inside your belly button. Depending on your case, he may remove excess fat, tissue, and skin from the area around the navel to reconstruct and reshape the belly button to your desired appearance. Although umbilicoplasty is often performed in conjunction with other surgeries like a tummy tuck or mommy makeover, it can be performed alone. You can learn more about this procedure with our frequently asked questions about belly button surgery.
