Omphaloplasty

The umbilicus is an important and essential aesthetic component of the abdomen.
It is sometimes due to scars caused by piercings, surgical procedures, etc. and after pregnancy that the umbilicus has to be re shaped or even recreated by surgical treatment.

Omphaloplasty is generally performed under local anesthesia. When hernia correction has to be performed it is usually done under general anesthesia.
