I think that possibly you’re misunderstanding your surgeon.  The belly button is not replaced, as it remains essentially where it was, on it’s stalk beneath the skin and tissues, and when your surgeon pulled the skin down, he/she pulled it over the belly button, and then created a new opening for it in the pulled-down skin.
