Is above belly button swelling normal 13 weeks post op Tummy Tuck? (photos)

I had a tummy tuck 13 weeks ago. Everything healed fine and I feel great. I'm back to running between 8-10 km a day. I had a little bit of seroma at 6 weeks which my dr removed and then it looked fine. Is it possible that my PS tighted my muscles too much? Why is there swelling/bump above my belly button?My recovery was not bad.

Complete resolution of swelling may take many months after abdominoplasty.

From the photographs I see nothing to be alarmed about. It may take a number of months before swelling is totally resolved after in abdominoplasty.
