Usually the belly button does get replaced. I was put on blood thinners for 10 days after surgery to prevent blood cots as I was not mobile for those days.. I mean i was mobile but majority of my time i was sitting in the chair. I had my muscles tighten and I am fine....FYI- I would recommend researching out another surgeon. My surgeon was Dr,. Yarinksi from Saratoga Plastic Surgeons in Saratoga, NY. He is awesome and tells you excately what to expect. Everything he told me was the truth. I hope this helps.
