Abdominal Scar Revision & Belly Button Reconstruction

This 29-year-old woman came in asking for revision of her abdominal scar. She also noted that she could not locate her belly button since her previous emergency surgery. Her before-and-after photos are shown to the left (after photos taken 6 weeks later). Note the umbilicus has been reconstructed in addition to the scar revision. New York City surgeon Dr. Sterry takes a custom approach to create discreet scars for all patients. 

Patient Age: 29

Motivation for Scar Revision:
Thick (hypertrophic) scar formation

Scar Revision Technique:
Complete scar excision and repair with local flaps in layers

Anesthesia:
General 

Recovery:
This patient complained about some muscle cramps postoperatively.
