Most people have belly buttons that are not centered. This may be impossible to fix. Sometimes it can be moved over by detaching the belly button from the abdominal wall. 

Belly button slightly off center after tummy tuck is OK.

Many people normally have a belly button that is a little bit off center.  See if you get used to it.  Very difficult to correct.
