Some are born with it, and a few find themselves with it after pregnancy: an “outie” belly button.
Many women are uncomfortable with their navel’s appearance. Even Kelly Ripa once had a magazine cover photo altered so her outie would appear to be an innie. But there’s a surgical solution available to those who want a permanent change.
If you’re unhappy with your outie, talk to a plastic surgeon about umbilicoplasty (also known as bellybutton revision). This procedure takes about an hour under local anesthesia (with or without sedation). There is little to no pain, bruising or swelling involved, and it can be performed in conjunction with a tummy tuck.
