Our procedure involves separating the skin from your abdominal wall after the initial incision has been made from hip to hip. Then, we bring your abdominal muscles closer together and affix them in place. Finally, we stretch the skin back down, remove excess skin, and make a new spot for your navel.
Depending on the scope of your surgery, many of our patients go home the same day. After a few days, all of your stitches will be removed and you can get started on the healing process. Most patients can expect to return to all activities in 3-4 weeks.
