Introduction: Under the cultural aspect the umbilicus is the only scar accepted in the body, its dysmorphia or absence is noted negatively. Distortions of this scar are still frequent in the abdominoplasties determined by several different aesthetic technical procedures to imitate its natural aspect. The scope of this presentation is another attempt to obtain a neoomphaloplasty based on an easy technical procedure, with a quite natural final aspect and without scars. Methods: During the abdominoplasty, the umbilicus and its stalk are amputated and the dermis of the skin over the future projection is sutured directly to the fascia below, after the local fat excesses be divulsioned to produce the natural navel aspect without scar. Results: Along the last nine years, 319 patients were operated by this technique, with a natural aspect and minimal unaesthetic effects.
