What to Expect
Dr. Goldschmidt can perform this under light sedation (twilight anesthesia) or general anesthesia or with you awake if you prefer (local anesthesia). Once the skin is trimmed, the umbilicus is reshaped and sutures are placed to hold it in the desired position. The belly button can be converted from an “outie” to an “innie” if desired. Sometimes Dr. Goldschmidt can move the belly button slightly higher or lower if desired.
Dr. Goldschmidt consults and examines each patient in order to present the best cosmetic options. Other issues such as a hernia can also be addressed or diagnosed at this time. If you have any questions, please call our office in Independence conveniently situated just south of Cleveland.
