Black skin patch near belly button? (Photo)

Got my tummy tuck surgery done 2 weeks back. I had dark patch near my belly button. It still have no effect. My surgeon says it will go off on its own. I am afraid if any scar will be left

I would see your surgeon immediately.  It looks like it might be an area with vascular compromise.  Good luck.
