There is a new trend in plastic surgery that women are opting for after they have had a baby. They are choosing to fix something that can be done relatively easily, and that can improve their self-confidence greatly.  Many women are choosing to go under the knife to correct changes with their belly buttons that occur during pregnancy.

Why Does the Belly Button Change with Pregnancy?

Your belly button can change in shape during pregnancy because:
  • The diameter of the belly button becomes larger as the skin is stretched over a growing belly
  • The walls of the belly button thin out
  • The belly button may either pop out farther or become more shallow as the tension of tissues change
  • An existing belly button hernia may be aggravated by the pregnancy causing swelling and pain
