7 weeks PO LBL, belly button was innie, now is an outie. Will this problem resolve itself?

I'm 7 weeks po from a LBL. My belly button has always been an "innie", but now is an "outtie". Will this problem resolve when my (fairly mild) swelling subsides?

You are still early after the surgery. There is a lot of swelling. Wait 6 months then evaluate. If the problem persists then revision can be done to create an innie belly button
