What is umbilicoplasty?
Umbilicoplasty is a procedure that changes the appearance of your bellybutton. It was originally used to treat umbilical hernias in infants. In recent years, it’s become a popular cosmetic surgery. The goal of umbilicoplasty is to give the bellybutton a more vertical shape instead of a horizontal one. It’s usually considered by women after pregnancy or people who have scarring from an old bellybutton piercing.
What is labiaplasty?
Generally speaking, a labiaplasty does to your vertical lips what a barber does to your split ends. Also known as vaginal rejuvenation, labiaplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that involves modifying the labia minora (inner lips), and/or the labia majora (outer lips).
What is Buffalo Hump?
A hump behind the shoulder, also called a buffalo hump, can develop when fat gathers together behind your neck. This condition is not necessarily serious. Tumors, cysts, and other abnormal growths can also form on your shoulders, creating a hump. Other times a hump can be the result of a curvature in the spine.
What is The Hip Dip?
In popular representations of bodies, especially female bodies, we’re used to seeing a streamlined, half-circle silhouette that curves out at the hip and curves back at the thigh. While this might be an image that we take for granted as a “normal” or desirable way to look, many people’s bodies just don’t look like that.
“Hip dips” or “violin hips” refer to indentations around the curvature from your hips to your thighs. These indentations can happen when the skin on the sides of your hips is more tightly attached to the trochanter, a deeper part of your thigh bone. The distribution and amount of fat on your body can make these indentations appear more noticeable. There’s nothing anatomically wrong with having hip dips. They don’t present any medical risk. But for some people, having hips dips makes them feel self-conscious.
