Swelling on the top of the belly button, below the breasts

I have swelling above the belly button below the breast. My surgery was back in april 6 of this year. The swelling there doesn't go away. Does anyone know why? Or what I could do?

Swelling

Its hard to tell without a photo or physical exam.  This could be swelling from surgery, but after four months, it could also be fullness from extra fat, or a protrusion of the abdominal wall.  I would follow up with your surgeon for options.
