Photographs for Belly Button Umbilicoplasty Navel Surgery
We saw patients from around the world.
To help our patients become comfortable with us, we featured a preliminary remote package. That way our patients were able to feel comfortable with us before traveling to Richmond.Our patientd filled out forms, provided us information about their concerns and pictures. 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
|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.
|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.|
|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
|Do not use a mirror to take the pictures.|
|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.
|Posterior View Picture|
For Details about each image, please check the examples below.
If there is something you feel is best demonstrated by a specific different view, please include that detail. We are interested in your concerns.
The pictures must include AT LEAST as much as in these images. The view may extend to the shoulder and down to the knees (except in the close up views).
Start with the frontal view arms down relaxed at the side. they continue with arms up overhead. Lifting the arms up pulls on the stomach skin and can show just how tethered the belly button is and can change the shape of some belly buttons.
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.
Front Oblique Pictures
Oblique pictures should be at 45 degrees and half way between the frontal and side photographic views.
Back Oblique Pictures
Posterior oblique pictures should be at 45 degrees and half way between the back and side photographic views.
Posterior View Picture
In some cases, the posterior view is important. This picture can show if the problem extends around the torso requiring contouring around the entire body.
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
- possible hernias
- possible numb or sensitive areas
