CASTILLO D, PAULO; TRONCOSO R, ANTONIO; VILLAMAN G, JUAN  y  PRADO S, ARTURO. Umbilical reinsertion during abdominoplasty: Y technique using flaps without epidermis. Report of five cases. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2006, vol.58, n.3, pp. 231-234. ISSN 0718-4026.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-40262006000300014.

The absence or anatomical distortion of the umbilicus may cause severe psychological problems. One of the objectives of abdominoplasty is to obtain a esthetically attractive umbilicus. We report a new technique of umbilical reinsertion, denominated Y technique with flaps without epidermis. It has been used in five patients. It is easy to perform and yields reproducible results, obtaining natural looking umbilicuses, with a high degree of satisfaction among patients

Palabras clave : Umbilical reinsertion; abdominoplasty; plastic surgery.
