Woman Wakes Up To Missing Belly Button After Tummy Tuck Surgery

A 45-year-old Houston woman went into surgery for a tummy tuck and umbilical hernia removal, but she was shocked when she came out without a belly button.

"I went in with the belly button, and I'd like to know what you did with it? What happened to it? Did you throw it in the trash? Where is it?" Lori Jones asked her doctors, according to KTRK.

Lori Jones said she decided to have the surgery after a recent C-section because she wanted to flaunt her body in two-piece bathing suit this summer.

Jones consulted with famous Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Younan Nowzardan. He focuses on gastric-bypass surgeries for overweight patients and has been featured on the TLC show "My 600 Pound Life."

In December 2015, the doctor performed umbilical hernia removal and tummy tuck surgery on Jones. Weeks later, when Jones removed the surgical tape and gauze, she was shocked to see that her belly button was gone.

Jones said Dr.Nowzardan never warned her about losing her belly button.

"We did tell her before, and she had a previous surgery, and she had a scar, and there's no way you can save that area. I told her that before surgery and after surgery," Dr. Nowzardan told KTRK.

Jones argued that the doctor said her belly button would be re-sectioned. But Jones said she'd rather settle it in court.

"We can call Hollywood and get an Oscar nomination for her," said Dr. Nowzardan. He also added that he can recreate a belly button for Jones after six months of healing.
