Do you think my belly button looks alright after 3 weeks TT? The puffiness inside is swelling? Seroma? Or is going to stay like that forever. I wish normal navel. I am going to see my PS Set,24. But I want a second opinion...

Welling of the belly button after tummy tuck is very common
Thank you for your question. Always discuss your concerns with a plastic surgeon who performed your operation.
That said swelling of the belly button is very common after tummy tuck. From your photographs it appears that this is normal swelling and your case.
Belly Button - Swelling or Seroma?
Appears as residual skin but could be swelling. Allow 3 to 6 months of healing than decide with your surgeon the diagnosis //
No diagnosis by photos
and you should simply let your surgeon know of your concerns. If it doesn't resolve with healing, revisions can always be done to improve outcomes. So know your surgeon's revision policy as well.
