There is no doubt your belly button is still swollen and it will improve over the coming weeks and months.
There is a small area which appears to be at about 7 O'clock in your photo that looks a bit bruised. This area may take a little longer to heal but shouldn't affect the long term result.
Make sure you show your plastic surgeon at your follow up visit just to be sure.
All the best

- You are swollen,
- The belly button will shrink down,
- Be sure your plastic surgeon knows about the area of black/blue discoloration,
- this will probably take extra time to heal. Best wishes.
