These images can be in JPEG or JPG compressed format or actual photographs. There was a fee for this preliminary evaluation.

Check List for Technique Issues - Belly Button Photos for Umbilicoplasty Navel Plastic Surgery

belly button umbilicoplasty photos pictures and standard images Fill the image with the region between the neck and the knees (except for close up views.)
It is very difficult to analyze the abdomen on an image that includes the entire body. Detail is lost if the important information occupies only a small part of the frame. Include the entire region from neck to knees unless you are including an additional view of a detail you want to demonstrate.
  belly button umbilicoplasty photos pictures and standard images If using flash, point the flash so that the shadows do not obscure the important breast outline. This is done by having camera mounted flash on the same side as the stomach and the camera towards the back. This is not as great a concern when no flash is used.
belly button umbilicoplasty photos pictures and standard images Focus the camera.
The body should be in focus. You may need to take the camera off of its automatic setting to get the belly button in focus. Blurred images are difficult to evaluate. Make sure that the close up images are also in focus
belly button umbilicoplasty photos pictures and standard images Do not use a mirror to take the pictures.
belly button umbilicoplasty photos pictures and standard images Choose your background carefully.
Pick an uncluttered background with no mirrors. A mirror or glass surface can reflect a flash and make photographs difficult to evaluate. A plain matte background is best. Avoid background clutter. Try to pick a contrasting flat background behind you that does not detract from the stomach.

Please check your images before sending them to us. You should be able to clearly see your problem on your images.

For a Preliminary Remote Discussion to be effective, Dr. Bermant needs to see pictures that demonstrate your concerns.

Standard views for the belly button and navel surgery:
To understand the problem of the belly button, we need to have a better understanding of the entire abdomen. Seeing just a close up of the belly button alone just does not show the entire picture. In addition to the full abdominal views, close ups can show belly button details lost on the wider views.

The photos must include AT LEAST as much as in these images. The view should extend from the neck to the abdomen.

The arms should be a little way away from the sides except the bending over view to evaluate symmetry (evenness). Holding the camera in one arm makes it impossible to determine any differences between the left and right sides.

Frontal View
The belly button is difficult to understand without the surrounding tissue. This is a standard tummy tuck set of photographs, an analysis of the abdominal and stomach regions.

Side photos should be perpendicular to the camera film plane. Side and oblique views can have the arms at the sides (which in some cases will obscure details). In some cases it is better to have the arms behind the back to show possible concerns they would otherwise obscure. Raising the arms can stretch loose tissue and can distort the anatomy.

Bending Over Pictures

Bending over photographs lets it all hang out, the folds of flesh show up more. It can show if the problem is more global needing a tummy tuck or if adequate resources remain for revision surgery. Here are lateral views. Below are oblique and front bending over views.

Excess Skin Picture
Loose skin folds can sometimes be demonstrated by holding the extra skin for a photograph. Some scars and wrinkles can also be demonstrated with pictures.

If you feel that other pictures better demonstrate your concerns, please include those views also.

Pictures can be mailed to us. If you want them back, please include return postage. E-mail of compressed images is also possible. Medium JPEG compression permits faster uploads and downloading. Images can be as small as what you see here. 200 pixel high photos are fine for computer viewing and quick transmission.

belly button scarsScars
Scarring close up photographs can be important for any ealuation.

 

Images only show up so much detail and do not replace the in office examination and evaluation. I need to feel and observe the tissue:

  • how loose / tight
  • how it moves
  • how elastic
  • scars
  • possible hernias
  • possible numb or sensitive areas
