PMID:  10541852     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The authors present a simple technique for restoration of the umbilicus in abdominal dermolipectomy. This procedure is represented by a double-Y cutaneous incision on the abdominal skin and by a double-M cutaneous incision on the umbilical skin. This technique restores a neoumbilicus with multiple small skin flaps and conceals the periumbilical scar at the bottom of the umbilicus. Different designs and figures are proposed to explain the procedure.
