What Our Patients Say

The first time I had some doubts about the intervențion , Due to the fact that the hair regenerates periodic,what I can say is that the result of a hair transplant is 100% successful. This revival comes after a period of 9 months waiting to see the result of the intervention. I recommend Flymedi and of course I recommend the person who was near me during the intervention Mr Mustafa. Mr. Mustafa is a person I rarely met. I can say that everything related to professionalism is on his side. I recommend to all those who want to have professional interventions, to have the highest confidence in Flymedi. Thank you Flymedi !

I am really happy that I have planned my operation through Flymedi. Robin took great care of me and was always there for me and made everything possible. I had a breast lift and tummy tuck and had liposuction by Dr. Asli Datli. MedicalPark in Istanbul. she is a super doctor, the results has become very nice and was also there well cared for. Nurse Yeliz is adorable and has always been by my side. She was also always available and answered all my questions. I have felt very well, thanks again to all I am very satisfied.

I recently had a rhinoplasty in Turkey, it was so hard to find the right surgeon to get it done by, and also to even get the courage to do it!! but fortunately I got in contact with Nadia, she helped me alot through this process, she is not only sweet but also professional and she was always available and responding to my questions... So far it was a good experience with Flymedi! Nothing to complain about! The process went smooth just as they offered me :)

Overview

Belly button surgery, also known as umbilicoplasty, is a surgical procedure that changes the appearance of the bellybutton. It was initially used to treat umbilical hernias in infants; however, it's become a popular cosmetic surgery to improve the appearance of the belly button in recent years. The main purpose of belly button surgery is to give the belly button a more vertical shape instead of a horizontal one. Women, after pregnancy or people who have to scar from an old bellybutton piercing, have mostly used this procedure.

Preparation

Patients need to quit smoking at least a month before the belly button surgery procedure to reduce the risk of complications. Stop taking certain medications or supplements in the weeks or days before the surgeons also advise the surgery. If the procedure will be performed under general anesthesia, patients also need to avoid eating anything in the hours before the belly button surgery.

How It Is Performed

Depending on the scope of the procedure and the patient condition, the surgeon may apply either local or general anesthesia. Once the anesthesia kicks in, the surgeon removes any extra skin around the belly button. Depending on the patient's expectations, the surgeon may trim its angles to appear either higher or lower. Once the desired result is achieved, the stitches are used to hold everything together during the recovery period. The procedure takes less than an hour.

Recovery

The recovery period from a belly button surgery procedure may last from 24 hours up to two weeks, depending on the complexity of the surgery. Patients can typically resume daily routine, work, showering, and light activities within 1-3 days after the procedure. Special garments may be recommended to help the healing of treated area as well as a bulky cotton dressing for five days after the belly button surgery.

Risks

  • Scarring
  • Infection
  • Bleeding

Side Effects

  • Increase in belly button size

Success Rates

According to a study observed the outcomes of the belly button surgery, 80% of the patients indicated their satisfaction with the results.

Before And After

Belly button surgery is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is performed on the navel to improve the appearance of the belly button. Especially women desire a more pleasing belly button after their pregnancy and find their solution in the belly button surgery. This procedure is also recommended to the individual who does not have their belly button piercing anymore and wants their navel to look naturally beautiful again. Belly button surgery makes these two groups of candidates very satisfied after having it. However, some other conditions could be the reasons for undergoing a belly button surgery. Doctors will consult and guide you if you consider this effective cosmetic surgery procedure.
