Belly button concern

Thanks for your inquiry, but without a picture or exam it is hard to comment.  The symptoms you describe are not common and you should see your plastic surgeon, good luck.

Bloated and pain around umbilicus

Hello, if you have persistent problems and pain around the belly button you should seek a proper assessment by a doctor.  It will not be possible to get a diagnosis or meaningful treatment suggestions with this type of forum.

Speak to your surgeon

To answer your question, a proper in person assessment would be required.  It is best you speak to your plastic surgeon or another board certified plastic surgeon.
