2.5 weeks post op umbilical scar revision. Is my belly button healing correctly? (Photos)

I had a tummy tuck and hernia repair 2 years ago. My belly button turned into an open wound and finally after months of having a wound vac it finally closed and turned into one big scar. I just had it repaired and I'm concerned its not healing correctly.

I suggest seeing your physician.  This is going to need laser treatments and should have the appropriate post operative skin care with silicone based scar gels with growth factors.  Best, Dr. Emer.
