It’s your daily dose of gross! The Doctors watch a video of a man using a tweezer to pull naval stones out of his belly button. Naval stones are hard clumps of dead skin cells and oil that form in the belly button. “It looks like a snail coming out of there,” plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon comments.
Dr. Ordon shares that they are actually not that uncommon! There are no symptoms so they often go unnoticed. He says they are all related to hygiene. Especially if you have an innie belly button, it is very easy for things to get trapped in there. As a plastic surgeon, while performing tummy tucks or liposuction, he has to get in there closely and he has seen some pretty nasty stones in there!
OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry advises showering! It helps to get some of that debris away.
