How extensive would the surgery be for an outtie to be a smaller innie? (photo)

I have an umbilical hernia which when very young was an outtie but is now an innie but the area is quite large and sensitive, how extensive would the surgery be to make my belly button smaller and better looking.

Umbilicoplasty

takes about one hour to perform. Outpatient surgery meaning you go home the same day. You appear to be a good candidate but could form a keloid scar. Look for a board certified plastic surgeon
