Hi
Males usually get inguinal hernia
And female normally umbilical hernia.
But it is not that a male shouldn't get umbilical hernia.
It is because of the weakness of the abdominal muscles, which can't stop the part of one's intestines in place & the intestine protrudes through the weak point.
In your case, I feel the choice of the correcting surgery is best left to the surgeon who is working on you.
Good luck
