A 32-year-old woman had an abdominoplasty and mammoplasty surgery in Ecuador. Following surgery, pruritic and slightly suppurative nodular lesions appeared over the abdominal and mammary scars. During the following months, satellite papules and nodules arose on distant sites. All bacterial cultures performed grew methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus and she received oral trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, levofloxacin and topical fusidic acid without improvement. She moved to Spain and was evaluated at our hospital two years after the surgery.

It is not uncommon for underlying pathologies, such as hernias and surgical scars, to result in a disfigured or obliterated native umbilicus or make the blood supply to the umbilical stalk unreliable. In these scenarios, the umbilicus is often sacrificed. Staged neoumbilical reconstruction may be offered and typically utilizes a small skin flap and full-thickness skin graft (Ann Plast Surg 2009;63:358–360). Our technique, in contrast, permits reconstruction of the neoumbilicus in the immediate setting util...
