Body lift - belly button still red after 3 1/2 weeks
Thank you for asking about your body lift.
- Your belly button does look a little inflamed.
- It may be a reaction to your sutures or to bandaging over the skin.
- Ask your surgeon's advice and give it time.
- It will probably slowly improve over the next few weeks.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
