Belly button surgery/Umbilicoplasty
You have stenosis or narrowing of the opening to your belly button. This can be improved with umbilicoplasty surgery. I advise you see a fully qualified plastic surgeon with experience in this area.

Thanks for posting your questions and photograph. You have a narrowing of your belly button most likely due to scar tissue. An umbilicoplasty may improve the aesthetic appearance of your belly button. Arrange a consultation with a fully qualified and experienced plastic surgeon to discuss your options.
Narrow belly button
Unfortunately your belly button has significantly narrowed due to the scarring and likely the issues you had with the surgery. An umbilicoplasty or surgery to revise/recreate the belly button may help improve the overall appearance. Due to the amount of central skin involvement complete removal of the thinning tissue may not be possible. However, this would only be able to ascertained with an in person examination.
I would recommend seeking out a board certified plastic surgeon to talk the possibility of umbilicoplasty to improve your belly button appearance.
Best of Luck!
