Does my belly button look normal? (photos)

I'm 24 days op from a full tummy tuck. Things seem to be healing well but I'm concerned about my belly button area. There are still stitches but it seems to "leak" clear/yellow fluid and get crusty. Is this normal?

3 weeks post op, some advices:

Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us.
At this point (3 weeks post-po) the swelling have to be minimal.
To reduce it, I recommend you perform daily lymphatic drainage massage therapy over the abdomen and wear a postoperative girdle from thigh to the breasts.
Kind regards,
