Surgery: It sounds like you have an abdominal incisional hernia. If it is for an inguinal hernia that still has hernia you could consider surgery. Besides cosmetic, henia sacs may contain bowel etc. At your age a hernia repair will help improve your quality of life. See your doctor and talk to your parents and friends.

Maybe: What you need to do is see a surgeon for a consultation, and explicitly let the surgeon know what your goals of operation are. The surgeon should then let you know how realistic it will be to meet those goals with surgery.
