Leave it alone
I agree with most of the answers on this page regarding your concerns. Your abdomen (including your belly button) looks awesome. You obviously take pride in your appearance, and it's evident that you work hard to maintain yourself. Congratulations.
Your abs are awesome. You definitely do not need a tummy tuck. I would also advise against the umbilicoplasty. Although you have a small hood over you navel, it probably will not be worth the scar involved in removing it. I suggest you show off your ripped abdomen and stay away fom the knife. You are not by any chance just fishing for compliments, are you?

Your tummy does look great and you should show it off...but...I am going to differ with my colleagues here because I think in looking at the close, close up of your BB, I think you could safely have a little wedge taken out of the bulging part of the top of the BB and not touch the very top hooding part and not touch any of the bottom half which looks great. You do not need an incision 360 around the BB but I have taken just that little wedge out on many occasions and it works great and the scar is confined to inside the BB. And NOT a TT!

Thanks for your inquiry and pictures. You definitley do not need a tummy tuck and your umbilicus is a variation of very normal. I am not sure anyone can improve it.

Posted photos lead me to offer you not-a-thing. But you should at least hear this from a boarded PS in person.
Leave well enough alone please
You look perfect, any surgery will leave scars that will be worse than what you have. Be grateful and show off your abdomen proudly!
