I have had my tummy tuck about 2 years ago, and still there seems to be a hard lump directly under my belly button. More specifically, the area that is still numb. It is not painful, however it does seem to tense up with my abdominals when I do a ab work. Is this scar tissue? Or did the surgeon mess up?

The lump may be some fat that became hard (fat necrosis), a suture reaction (if permanent sutures were used), or a fluid collection (seroma). These minor problems can be treated with a small office procedure. Ask your surgeon to evaluate it and make sure it is not a hernia (unlikely).
I think with a simple lypo will correct this bumpy
