    Surgeons in Singapore have completed their research and come up with the dimensions and characteristics of a perfect belly button.

    Surgeons in Singapore have completed their research and come up with the dimensions and characteristics of a perfect belly button.

    Their study included the analysis of nearly 40 Playboy models.

    The magazine page flipping, belly button measuring, and aesthetic breakdown resulted in the declaration that perfection occurs at a vertical ratio of 46 to 54.

    Other appealing features include an oval shape and slight hooding.

    A plastic surgeon in the US admits that their choice of resources was a bit random.

    He said, “Using Playboy playmates is kind of an arbitrary sample. Just because these women are considered beautiful doesn’t mean they have beautiful belly buttons.”

    Also noted was that in his experience when patients seek to have theirs surgically altered it’s typically done with the goal of fitting into the range of normal.

    Sometimes when people gain weight or get a tummy tuck their belly buttons can all but disappear, and they simply want them back.

    As far as defining the parameters of perfection, the Singapore study isn’t the first to attempt to do so.

    In 2000, researchers at the University of Missouri also set out to find the feature’s ideal formation and location, and they too found vertical ‘innie’ buttons with a slight hooding were preferred.
