If you don’t like your belly button, you can change it. I routinely perform cosmetic belly button surgery in my New York City office. In fact, this has become one of my popular procedures with patients coming to me from all over the world. I perform about 5 belly button surgeries, or umbilicoplasty, per week. This means that I do more of these surgeries per month, than most board certified plastic surgeons do in their entire careers!
There are a variety of changes that I can make to your belly button. I can convert your “outie” to an “innie”. I can eliminate that old belly button piercing that now looks out of place. I can remove a large hood at the top of your belly button. I can make a very small belly button appear larger. I can remove some of the line and wrinkles around the belly button.
Maybe you were born with a belly button that you don’t like, or maybe you had a previous surgery on your belly button that made things worse. Many of my patients have had prior umbilical hernia repairs, tummy tucks, or attempts at umbilicoplasty by other less qualified doctors.
The procedure is done in the comfort of my own office using only local anesthesia. Most cases take only about 45 minutes and you can go about your usual business immediately.
My cosmetic belly button technique has been featured on The Doctors, Good Morning America, and in The New York Post.

Pictures recently surfaced that rocked the world of females aged 25-45. John Stamos, known most famously for his role as Uncle Jessie on Full House and considered among the “hottest” men around (or so my wife says) is not so perfect after all. He has what people are calling a “deformed” belly button. What he has is more than simply an “outie” and he claims it is the result of a childhood operation to repair an umbilical hernia.

Let me know if this sounds familiar: It was Spring Break and you were with a bunch of girlfriends. You were partying a little, nothing too crazy, but the usual Spring Break stuff. A group of you decided to get your belly buttons pierced. It seemed rather innocent at the time and foolproof. If you ever change my mind later on, all I had to do was not put in a belly ring and the hole will just close up and it would be like nothing ever happened. It is not like you got a tattoo! You enjoyed your piercing for several years. Then all of a sudden, the 90’s were over and it was not so cool to have your belly button pierced, especially now that you are in your 30’s and mother to a small child. So, you stopped wearing the belly ring but the hole just didn’t seem to close. In fact, the entire belly button seemed to be stretched out. The small hole that was only on the top of your belly button now seemed to be 2 inches above it! There also is a hanging flap of skin that you swear was not there a few year earlier. Now what are you going to do? The more you look at your belly button, the more fixated you become on it. You wish there was a way to make your belly button look better but certainly there is not.
