Did my belly button stretch out?
It will contract
Hi littlemssunshine,Thanks for sharing your photos. Your umbilicus has developed a wound and you should go see your surgeon to see if it's worth changing to a different wound-care routine. I can't see from the photo if the wound has yellow/white material in it. If it does, doing a few days of good wet-to-dry dressings will clean it up quickly. At that point, the wound will close and start to contract down. In 9-12 months, you'll have a big improvement in the appearance. Keep us updated on your progress.Dr. Weintraub
