Periumbilical pain after abdominoplasty
Typically with a tummy tuck sutures are placed in the fascia over the muscle including the area around the belly button. Sometimes these stitches can become irritated or may be pulling through just a little bit. Mild heat and antiinflammatories can help. Although it would be unusual at 6 weeks there could be a small abcess but that would likely involve swelling and redness.
Be sure to see yuor surgeon so he can have a look.
