Enlarging a bellybutton three years later.
Three years after your tummy tuck it is unlikely that stretching the bellybutton through massage or a marble will be of help. The good news is that making a small bellybutton larger is very easy. It is usually a small procedure that can be done under local anesthesia. I think your best bet would be to check in with your plastic surgeon and share your concern.

Marble Trick 3 Years after Tummy Tuck?
Thank you for the question.
At this stage (3 years after tummy tuck surgery) the umbilical scar is mature. Therefore, the “marble trick” will not work. I would suggest follow-up with your plastic surgeon to discuss options for revisionary surgery.
