I had a FTT on 6/10/09. Developed a seroma even though I had drains in for weeks and weeks. Doc operated again on 9/18/09 to close the seroma cavity.


When doc went in again, removed a bit more additional skin/fat. Now appears that my belly button is unnaturally low (very close to pubic area/scar lin). Could/shoud the doc have done something about re-positioning the belly button hight when he went in for 2nd surgery or is this not even possible. Plan on mentioning on next follow-up visit but would like some understanding first. Liked the position of the belly button with the first surgery, now it's location is upsetting.
