While it’s probably easy to imagine the tighter, smoother contours that a tummy tuck could help you achieve, it might be a little more difficult to visualize what happens to your belly button after your tummy tuck.*
Since this is a common question that many people ask before their Avelar tummy tuck, it can be helpful to have a better understanding of the procedure steps and what this will mean for your belly button’s appearance and placement.
What Is an Avelar Tummy Tuck?
You’ll have a couple different options in terms of the surgical technique that your cosmetic surgeon can use for your tummy tuck. One of the most effective is what’s called the Avelar tummy tuck, which essentially combines a traditional abdominoplasty with liposuction.
The best candidates for an Avelar tummytuck have areas of excess fat that they’d like to remove in addition to loose skin. The inclusion of liposuction can take abdominal contouring to the next level, allowing for a more nuanced final result. Additionally, because the Avelar tummy tuck doesn’t require post-operative drains, you can expect a more comfortable recovery.*
Make sure you’re working with an experienced cosmetic surgeon who can deliver optimalresults.
Your New Belly Button
Likeatraditional tummy tuck, your cosmetic surgeon will remove your natural belly button and create a new one during an Avelar tummy tuck. As always, surgical skill is the key to achieving the optimum results, and that includes the appearance of your belly button after an Avelar tummy tuck.*
