If you have to have gallbladder removal surgery but had surgery to remove your bellybutton what will be the surgery chosen?

In brief: Laparascopic

Not having a navel will not alter your ability to have laparoscopic surgery.
Should still be able to access you abdominal cavity with a laparoscope in same general area as your navel was and proceed with gallbladder removal.

In brief: Not sure the ?

If you are asking which type of surgery can you have for your gallbladder after umbilectomy (removal of belly button) than the answer is still a laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
Small incisions with the use of a camera. Having no belly button does not preclude such an operation.
