The following post from our forum is from a woman who tells us that losing a belly button from a tummy tuck operation is not that uncommon.

Actually they can remove the belly button. I just left the PS and he told me that my belly button won’t make it. I would have to lose the belly button in order to do a tummy tuck. Also, that it is more common than you would think. I spoke to a friend on the way home and she had known someone who lost theirs in a tummy tuck.

I never heard that before. My plastic surgeon never even brought up the possibility that could happen. Even if he did, I probably would have proceeded with the tummy tuck. Nobody would know I didn’t have a belly button since I have a shirt on 99.99% of the time.
Out of curiosity I did some research and it looks like the actress Patricia Heaton, the wife on the TV show “Everybody Loves Raymond actress” may have lost hers in a tummy tuck too. At least that’s what some web sites imply.
Thanks! The Victoria’s Secret model Karolina Kurkova lost hers, too. Maybe it’s not so bad!!! Good luck, Christy
BTW, I didn’t realize your forum was for men, my diastasis and umbilical hernia is due to childbirth.
