Those who are thinking about a tummy tuck but don’t want to have any visible scars will likely find a tummy tuck with an incision only around the belly button an appealing option.
Through an umbilical incision, liposuction can reduce fat; and with the assistance of an endoscope, separated abdominal muscles (diastasis) can be tightened. But for women who have excess skin as the result of pregnancy, this may not be the optimal solution. Pregnancy stresses and stretches the abdominal area from below the breast through to the pubic region. An incision around the navel can only treat limited excess skin in the area around the navel-far less than what most women experience with pregnancy.
As with any procedure, trust the expertise of your plastic surgeon. Trying to minimize incisions is beneficial when it doesn’t minimize the results you hope to achieve.
