See your surgeon to examine this
Belly button after TT
Thank you for your question and photographs.Foul odor is a sign of infection. I would recommend that you schedule an appointment immediately with your plastic surgeon so that they can perform a physical examination and prescribe you antibiotics if necessary. You are still very early on in your recovery so it is hard to determine whether your belly button looks normal or not until you have fully healed.
Best of luck in your recovery!
