New belly button is extremely high and wasn't naturally before. I don't understand why. What can be done to lower it? (Photos)

I have just had a full tummy tuck and ended up having to have a vertical scar from my belly button down.

Umbilicus too high

There are multiple reasons why this could happen

and you are still early in your recovery. I suggest to

discuss your concerns with your board certified plastic

surgeon and see what he recommends. An option can

be excising the umbilicus and incorporate the incision with

the vertical scar follow by creating a new "belly button" at 

the desire location. Best wishes.
