Consult with a healthcare professional regarding your outie belly button. The only way to change your belly button to an innie is through a surgical procedure known as an umbilicoplasty. You'll need to make sure you're in good enough health beforehand. In some instances, an outie can indicate a hernia so it helps if you're screened and informed.

Yes! I did and mine was MUCH more of an outie than yours. Search "Umbilicoplasty" on here. The surgery only took about an hour and healing took about a month. It was very painful for the whole month since your belly button is right in the center where you bend and move for everything. I paid $1,700.00 for mine. Hope this helps and good luck :)

Thank you very very much,this was very helpful,just a few more questions if you don't mind. Were you completely happy with the results?is there noticeable scarring?were you awake during the procedure? Did you research many surgeons before the procedure or did you have it done by a surgeon recommended to you? I'm in south africa and would like to have the procedure done in the usa.

I had to be seen by a regular doctor at first to make sure the outtie wasn't caused by a hernia and then they referred me to the cosmetic surgeon I went to in the same area. in your search for the right surgeon, I would make sure you are going to someone certified in plastic AND reconstructive surgery. I was put under anesthesia for the operation in a hospital. My bellybutton was filled with gauze and when I took it out it looked really nasty and i wasn't able to see the final results for about a month and a half. After that I used a LOT of scar cream to get rid of the nasty scar that i thought would never go away and now no one even notices there is a scar! I was completely happy with my results! Like I said, mine was much more "out" than yours, so I was thrilled when i saw my new innie. My surgeon did tell me beforehand that a revision surgery may be needed afterwards because he wasn't sure he could get it perfect the first time. It isn't perfect, it could be a little smaller, but it looks 110% better than before so i will not get the revision. He did tell me he would do it for free though. The healing process was so painful and thats another reason I declined the revision. This surgery has been like changing though. It helped my self esteem tremendously. I hope this helps :)

I just had umbilicoplasty to fix my belly button. I had umbilical hernia surgery and the general surgeon put my belly button back on too high and it turned into a major outie. I am 3 days from surgery and not that happy with my results but I hope it will look better soon. My Dr also said he may need to do a revision - but that doesn't exactly sound fun! I had my surgery under local so I was awake the whole time. It took 30-45 min.

I just realized my response wasn't that clear - I had umbilical hernia surgery months ago, which affected the appearance of my belly button. So I had to have my belly button cosmetically fixed, which is why I paid for umbilicoplasty.

If you don't mind me asking where did you go, I am looking to turn my outie in to and innie for a good price and that doesn't sound bad
