Hole Under Belly Button?

Thank you for your question.

I'm sorry you're having this problem after your #tummytuck.
It is difficult for me to give you my best advice from the photo alone.

Please contact your #BoardCertified #PlasticSurgeon to be examined in person.

Follow up with your plastic surgeon

Hi, BarbieBody2016

Sorry to hear that you have a hole under the belly button.  Based on the limited view of your abdomen, it is difficult to assess your problem fully. It will require local wound care.
As each plastic surgeon can have different surgical technique and post-op regimen, you should visit your plastic surgeon to be examined in-person and to get his/her wound care instruction.
Good luck with your recovery.
