I've had an outie for 17 years. When is it going to turn into an innie? I'm a male that lives in Maryland (Photo)

What can I do And how much would it coast

Outie to an innie

Your belly button will not turn from an outie into an innie.  Arrange a consultation with a  fully qualified plastic surgeon to discuss how an umbilicoplasty can help you achieve the results you desire.

Umbilicoplasty/Belly button surgery

It is unlikely your 'outie' will turn into an 'innie' and I advise you see a fully qualified plastic surgeon who is experienced in this surgery for assessment. An umbilicoplasty is most likely need to improve the appearance of your belly button.

All the very best,
