Why does my belly button smell after showering and why do I have pain and itchiness more than a year after tummy tuck?

Pain after tummy tuck
So it is important to use a Qtip to clean and possibly even dry the area. If you do not do all this, it may have an odor.
Pain and soreness is not uncommon as your body heals from surgery, but the amount of discomfort should not be life altering.
Any questions, please see your surgeon.
