Tummy Tuck: Q&AAsk a Question
Darkened Belly Button After Tummy Tuck
I had a Tummy Tuck 6 months ago, and my belly button is very dark and big/swelling. What caused this, and can this be corrected? Is there a topical treatment that can make it return to its normal skin color? Would I still benefit at this stage from using a silicone sheet for my scar? Thanks!
Consider the keloid
Belly Button skin color is often darker than the abdominal skin
Best to visit your surgeon
