In brief: Maybe
If the surgery would be purely for cosmetic reasons, then that is purely a personal decision.
If you have an umbilical hernia that is causing a bulge, and if it is enlarging or uncomfortable, then surgery can be performed to repair the hernia and return the belly button to a normal visual appearance.
