    Is it possible to get my belly button re-shaped?

    I have always hated the shape of my belly button. Can I have plastic surgery to correct it? If so what is the approximate cost?

    This is possible, but you must realise that you will be left with some scars. Most people would prefer the belly button that they have, rather than a new belly button with visible scars.

    I have an “outy” belly button which is mis-shapen after having it pierced as a teenager. I only discovered after that you are not meant to pierce an “outy” or that you should pierce below. I need to get it fixed as I am quite complexed about it. Thanks for you answer

    Dear member

    Reshaping of your belly bottom can be done safely and easily as an out patient procedure. Your Specialist may recommend an ultrasound of your abdomen before proceeding with the procedure. 

    I hope you found this helpful
