Your concerns are important to discuss directly with your board certified plastic surgeon. He or she will appreciate the open communication and will want to help you. If you seek out a second opinion look for the following: *Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery -- The gold star symbol *A member of the ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgeons) -- The circle symbol *A member of the ASAPS (American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons) -- the Queen Nefertitti symbol with a triangle.

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
