Abstract:The umbilicus is a very important component of the abdominal aesthetic view. However, loss of the umbilicus for any reason is a challenging problem. Various methods for umbilicus reconstruction have been published. Most of these methods are complex, and the surgical outcome is mostly unsatisfactory for the patients. The authors have developed a simple method for umbilicus reconstruction using a bilobed flap.
