In case you’re one of the tummy tuck candidates considering this strange add-on, here’s what you should know before nixing your naval.

Sure You Can, But That Doesn’t Mean You Should

Aside from collecting lint, our belly buttons don’t serve much of a purpose in our adult lives. But the beach sure would look pretty weird if we all up and got rid of them, wouldn’t they? The good news is that during abdominoplasty, your belly button can be completely reconstructed so it’ll still be there when your surgery is all said and done.

But if you’re really set on removing it, it is surgically possible.For some people with medical reasons for wanting to correct or get rid of their belly buttons, including an umbilical hernia or gastroschisis, this actually might be something to consider. But for the rest of us, asking a plastic surgeon to ditch this part of your anatomy is a little extreme.

Remember people, once you get rid of your belly button, there’s no getting it back later.

Designer Belly Button for the Win?

Okay, so what if you still want a belly button, but not your belly button? In this case, you could talk to your plastic surgeon about redesigning your navel during your tummy tuck. Heck, you can even trade your outie for an innie, or get the sexy oval shape that everyone seems to want these days. My suggestion? Just think long and hard before giving the go-ahead to get rid of your belly button for good.
