Can't See my Belly Button

This may be from swelling, but with a mini-TT the lower abdominal skin is pulled down and can cause downward traction on the navel, with "hooding" of skin over the top. It is one of the trade-offs. DIscuss with your surgeon what bothers you and your options.

Thanks and best wishes.

To be able to give you accurate advise posting a picture would be very helpful. Your only a month out you are still very swollen. I would see your surgeon and address your concern.
