Belly button after tummy tuck surgery

Is this normal??? I have no idea if this is how it’s supposed to be healing or not.

I’m still really swollen, and Dra Duran said not to put anything (like a marble to shape the belly button hole) until 1 month tummy tuck post op.

I’m about 2.5wks, but I don’t know if this is how it’s supposed to look or not.

  5. Jennifer says:

    Yes its normal. mine looks exactly the same I am 3.5 weeks post op. I was told to put gauze but also let it air some to help with healing.

  6. Jennifer says:

    I packed mine with cotton to shape it every since day 1 just put ointment inside and put cotton and a piece of tape over it

    It’s swelling that’s compacting your bb. As your tummy goes down your bb will round out.
