Patricia Heaton – Belly Button-less?

Several websites are posting photos of Patricia Heaton in a bikini and claiming she has no belly button after having a tummy tuck. Is this true? And if so, why?

It’s hard to tell from these photos if her umbilicus (belly button) was removed during her tummy tuck. If it was, this is actually not that uncommon, as many patients who have a tummy tuck have a hernia of their belly button as well. Some surgeons will repair the hernia at the time of the tummy tuck surgery. When this occurs, there is a risk that the belly button will lose its blood supply and die. Some surgeons will pre-empt this process by actually removing the belly button at the time of the surgery, with plans to remake a new one later. I tend to repair it at the time of surgery or have it done after the tummy tuck has completely healed.

Patricia Heaton – plastic surgery

Sunday, February 5th, 2006

Patricia Heaton from “Everybody Loves Raymond” is a good example of plastic surgery done well.  She has admitted to having several procedures done, including a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) and breast lift. Patricia had several children and breast fed them, causing her body to change dramatically (as happens with more women than men may think). Unfortunately, the tummy tuck and breast lift are not perfect surgeries because they create significant scars. In Patricia’s case, they have worked very well to give her a very nice, red carpet-ready figure. The surgeries take about 3 hours each, and have a downtime for most people of about 2 weeks. Now, everybody loves Patricia’s new body!
