Will this crease go away? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 13
I appreciate your concern, but it is way too early in your postop course to worry. Your photo does not show any serious problems. Consult with your plastic surgeon and try to be patient because it appears that you have a great result! Good luck!
You are very early in the post-op and it may be related to swelling. Best to review with your surgeon if you have concerns.

You are still in the very early stages of your post operative recovery and its too early to determine your final result. Be patient and continue to closely follow your plastic surgeons post operative guidelines.

You are very early in the healing and settling process which can take several weeks to months. Close follow up with your plastic surgeon is recommended during this process.
10 days post op
At 10 days out you remain swollen. The appearance should all improve with resolution. If not continue to discuss it with your surgeon.
Best of luck
Still so early
At only 10 days, there is still swelling in the tissue, and the binder I'm sure is squeezing the tissues as well. Of course, you should be bringing her concerns up to your surgeon, but I usually recommend time and massage for small things like this, which almost always settle out and flatten.
Best of luck!

Thank you for your question. It is hard to tell if the crease will resolve; however, there is a good chance it will improve over time as your swelling resolves in the next several weeks to months. Check back with your surgeon.
Post op appearance
I see the crease but it is far too early to tell if it will stay or not. Keep following your surgeon's instructions.
You are still very early in the post operative period so please be patient with your results. As the swelling goes down the appearance of your belly button will change. Best wishes!
Will this crease go away?
In all likelihood, minor problems like this resolve with time. It is certainly something that you should follow up with your surgeon. He or she may recommend massage for scar therapy to help with this problem.
