Procedure techniques & scars
Although the surgical sequence varies depending on the needs of each patient, Dr. Mok will usually treat the belly first, by removing the excess fat and skin from the belly button down to the pubic area. The abdominal wall muscle, underneath the fat is then tightened. The fat and skin above the belly button is stretched down to the pubic area and sutured in place. A new belly button opening is made to allow the belly button to be brought back to its original position.
