I have a question about my belly button constriction. (photos)

I am 6 months post op from a tt. I noticed my belly button became smaller. I went back to my surgeon. He gave me a shot of steroids and a procedure which seemed to cut or stretch the tissue around the belly button. I was told it would heal. My question is should my belly button look like this and what will it look like when it heals? Thx

I have a question about my belly button constriction.

The picture is very difficult to evaluate.  It is hard to determine if there is a scab over this area and where the umbilical stalk may be.  It is always best to ask these questions of your chosen surgeon as recommendations may be different.

No idea

impossible to know exactly where you were and what things will look like in the future. Looks like you should f/u with your surgeon as it is impossible to tell what exactly is going on with it now.
