Hi. I am interested in getting umbilicoplasty for my outie bellybutton that I hate. I go to a performing arts high school and I'm a dancer so in the dressing rooms I feel embarrassed... being the only girl with an outie! My question is how old do you have to be to have this surgery?
Someone should be old enough to help with the responsibilities of Revovery After Belly Button Surgery
or any elective cosmetic surgery.
Many do not like an "Outie" Belly Button and ask for an "Innie"
At your age, this is something you need to discuss with your parents. If they agree, we are glad to help you explore your options during a consultation or preliminary remote package (please see below). Many of our younger patients have told us that my website helped in their discussions with their parents.
Hope this helps,
