Return to your Plastic Surgeon if concerned
Thank you for sending in your pictures in for comment following your concern as to the colour of your stomach and the ongoing healing.
It is hard to tell from these photos whether there is any cellulitis or redness at all. The upper flap does appear a little oedematous. I would suggest that if you have any concerns that you return to your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for review.
Best wishes in your recovery.

Thanks for submitting your pictures.
From observing the picture, I do not see any signs of infection and the wound is healing well. The coloring appears normal and there does not seem to be separation of the wound. The swelling will improve noticeably in 6-8 weeks. The soreness of the drain site will disappear, once the drain wound heals completely.
There might be other issues like the belly button and the muscles tightening, but you will have to be patient for 2-3 months for final assessment.
All the best,
