Belly button looks big after tummy tuck

6 days after my tummy tuck surgery and I finally looked at my belly button. It looks really funny because it has a big hole and the little cord in the middle is protruding, I am very swollen though. On top of the tuck I had liposuction as well. Any suggestions?

Updated to include photo: I am still really swollen yet and this was taken 17 days after surgery. My belly button looks funny, but my PS said after the swelling goes down it will look better.

Hi There, It's hard to tell if what you're describing is natural swelling after a tummy tuck, or something more. Here are some answers to a similar question. The safest bet would be to contact your surgeon.

Thanks and I did. He said it is part of the swelling and it will go back to normal in time. Just looks funny is all. Everything does right now, but I think my swelling is going down slowly.
