What factors influence the appearance of my belly button?

Genetics are the primary determinant of your belly button’s features. Coding in your DNA dictates whether your belly button is an innie or an outie, how large or small its size is, and if it is oval, circular, or triangular shaped. Pregnancy and surgery can greatly modify the appearance of the belly button, converting it from an innie to an outie or distorting its original shape and size. Piercings also influence the characteristics of the belly button, as these decorative modifications may become stretched or less desirable over time.
