Definition: Belly Button or Umbilicus

Why Do I Have a Belly Button?

The umbilicus or belly button is the scar from the umbilical cord that nurtured you while in your mother's womb. This pit or depression is an attachment of your skin to the underlying muscle fascia or covering sheath of the muscles.

What is a Belly Button?

The divided cord scar typically forms a cavity or "innie" configuration. A projecting structure is often called an "outie." Many seem to prefer an "innie" instead of an "outie."

Why Do I Have a Belly Button?

The shape of the belly button comes from the attachment scar to the fascia, the looseness of skin, the fat under the skin, and the tension of what is behind the abdominal wall. Umbilical hernias can cause a change of belly button shape. Scars from surgery and jewelry can also shape the belly button.
