6 weeks post tummy tuck
It sounds like things are going well. I suggest continuing with your current post-operative care routine and see your surgeon as planned.
Tummy tuck healing
Your navel after your tummy tuck seems to be healing normally. It is common for slight drainage after scab comes off. Clean it gently with a cotton swab when you take a shower. See your surgeon as planned. Best wishes.
