Belly button scar and fluid after TT
Thank you for the question and photographs. It is important for you to consult with your surgeon about any questions or concerns you are having because he knows your background, medical history and procedure he performed on you best. With regards to the fluid, you should have your surgeon perform and examination immediately and possibly an ultrasound to detect if there is a seroma present. Your scar should continue to change and fade over the course of a year. There treatment options for scar removal such as a scar revision, topical scar creams or laser treatments. I hope this helps.

Tummy tuck - severely bloated and hearing water 6 months after surgery
- You need to return to your surgeon to be examined.
- You may need an ultrasound study.
- It is unusual but possible to have a persistent seroma and it definitely would need to be treated.
- It would explained the bloating.
- The belly button scar can be revised with a minor office procedure but should not be done until the cause of the bloating is known and treated.
