A 45-year-old surgery patient, Lori Jones, had surgery for a umbilical hernia removal and a tummy tuck.
According to Jones, the tummy tuck looked great — but the hernia surgery results, she could’t say. She spent weeks not seeing the complete results due to bandages and tape that covered the incision.
When the moment finally came for the big reveal, Jones’ belly button was gone!
ABC 13 Eyewitness News caught up with the world-renowned surgeon who performed the surgery — and also who has been featured on TLC’s My 600 Pound Life — and he said he informed the patient she may lose her belly button! Say what?!
Jones’ wasn’t having it. She denied the doctor told her she may lose her belly button because of the hernia. She thought her belly button would just be moved to another place on her stomach!
Now, the doctor said she will have to wait up to six months for it to heal before he could give her a belly button. Jones said she’d rather settle it court!
Would you rather settle for money OR have your belly button back?
