A safer and more comfortable option than the “marble method,” this sphere is used to help keep the newly created belly buttons of abdominoplasty patients open and round. The sphere is inserted into the belly button by the patient once the umbilical incision has healed. They keep it in place as long as comfortable, gradually increasing wear time to 8-12 hours a day. This keeps the desired round shape as the abdomen heals. Added bonus–silicone contact helps reduce the appearance of the umbilical scar!
