Tummy tuck - lighten belly button after it darkened
- First, try using 100% shea butter or cocoa butter on the belly button.
- Then, keep using that but also ask your surgeon to prescribe 4% hydroquinone.
- AND keep the belly button out fo the sun -
- If you expose darkened skin to the sun, it will go dark and stay dark no matter what you use.
- Good luck with this - it can take a long time to fade.
