Your belly button marks the spot where your umbilical (say: um-BIL-ih-kul) cord was once attached. This cord is a soft, bendable tube that carried nutrients — vitamins and minerals — from your mother to you, back when you were in her belly (womb).
Da Vinci’s Vitruvian man has the navel at its center. The belly button doesn’t have any biological uses, though it is used in some medical procedures. For instance, if a transfusion is necessary for a newborn, the umbilical cord stump is preferred.
Your belly button is your very first scar. It’s scar tissue left over from where the umbilical cord joined you to your mother’s placenta when you were in her womb. Just like fingerprints, no two belly buttons are alike.
The navel is a scar left by the umbilical cord which attatches a foetus to the placenta. If Adam and Eve were created as adults by God they would not have had an umbilical cord.
Some people don’t have a belly button, and the reason for this may be related to surgical history or just an anomaly in how the belly button formed (or didn’t, for that matter). Most of the time, if you don’t have a belly button, it’s related to a surgery or a medical condition you had when you were younger.
It is possible for feces or menstrual blood to come out of a belly button. An umbilical fistula, an abnormally developed passageway between the intestines and the umbilicus, can cause fecal matter to leak from the navel.
Most belly buttons are indented so act as a trap for sweat, dead skin, and dirt. Few people wash the belly button with soap so germs can develop. The most common cause for a belly button smell is poor hygiene. All areas of the body need to be washed regularly to stay clean and healthy.
Babies who have an omphalocele, on the other hand, truly are born without a belly button. The intestines or other abdominal organs protrude through a hole in the middle of the baby’s abdomen, right where the belly button would be.
According to a study at the University of Missouri, small, T-shaped belly buttons are the most attractive. Researchers showed pictures of innies, outies, and belly buttons of all shapes and sizes to a group of men and women who rated them on a scale of 1 to 10 from least to most attractive.
Omphaloliths. As dead skin cells and sebum — the oil secreted by your skin — accumulate in your bellybutton, they can form an omphalolith over time. Also known as a navel stone, they’re made of the same materials that form blackheads. The surface of a navel stone will turn black from oxidation.
No! The belly button is kind of like a scar. You can’t reopen your belly button. Depending on how the scar tissue forms will decide whether you have an innie or an outie!
Since mammals are gestated inside their mothers, they are all born with umbilical cords. When they emerge, the mother chews off the cord with her teeth, leaving a flat scar that is less noticeable than a human’s navel.
When a surgeon revises your current belly button, they call the surgery an umbilicoplasty. When they perform surgery to create a new belly button (if you don’t have one due to surgery at birth or later in life), they call this procedure a neoumbilicoplasty.
