It looks like you have some necrosis of the skin around the umbilicus and this is healing by secondary intention. This will take time and you need to keep in touch with your PS. The umbilicus is a congenital scar and this will heal and then contract and scar to give you a final result that won't be apparent for 6-12 months after surgery. It is always possible to revise the umbilicus once everything has settled but the crucial thing currently is that you keep in touch with your PS and make sure this is progressing appropriately.
