Is my bellybotton position too close to scar? It is less then 2 inches apart This picture is 7 days post op. Does the skin expand between the scar and bellybotton overtime. I was hoping to have at least 4 inches between the scar and the bellybutton. Is there anything I can do now?

@ sunshine627 Your scar line looks perfect and you look great! The space has expanded about an inch or 2 for me as I stand up straighter. The placement of the bellybutton is perfect now that I can see the results a little better 5 weeks postop!

I have had the same question! My BB is less than 2 inches from my scar line too. I see so many pictures of other TT's and they appear to be much further apart. You look fantastic so far. My PS told me that I have a very short mid-section and it was the perfect placement. Check out my pictures on my Mommy Makeover review...

Thank You! This is such a nerve wracking process. I made my profile pict my before pict. And as you can see there was a csection fold there and see how far the bellybotton is from the previous scar?

Yes it sure is!  It will be fine once you are standing up straight and healed up a bit more.

I think  our belly button looks good:)  It looks like the exact same placement as mine.  You also appear to have a nice low scar line. 

Lookin good!

I'm no expert and Kimmers can prob answer this question but I read somewhere that as u heal and are able to stand upright the distance somewhat changes.

Your belly looks great though!
