Anyone had a TT in Maine? Also belly button question
 
Hello,

I just joined this site because I'm looking into getting a TT done in the next year. I'd love to hear from anyone that has had a TT done in Maine. There aren't a lot of plastic surgeons here and I have two in mind so I'd love to hear feed back if anyone here has had surgery done here.

My other question is about my belly button. I had it pierced at one time and the hole is still there and saggy. If I have a full TT this would be removed as and I won't have a piercing in a weird spot right?

Thanks for any replies! :)

This depends on the piercing scar location and the geometry of the loose skin. I am almost always able to remove the belly button hole / surrounding skin as you can see in this

Belly Buttons After Tummy Tuck Gallery

There are exceptions when scars are well beyond the belly button, revision surgery, or very little loose skin on the stomach. Here is one extreme example Revision Tummy Tuck and Umbilicoplasty after another doctor's failed mini tummy tuck and other revision belly button surgery and then burn scar beyond the belly button.

Hope this helps,
