Drey Tummy Tuck Forum; Tummy Tuck Message Board, Abdominoplasty Forum Had a tummy tuck almost 4 weeks ago, and my bellybutton is red, white, with an odor and still drains. Is this normal after 4 weeks? Tummy Tuck Forum Response – I can’t tell you what is “normal” or not but my belly button “redness” went away in about a week, never drained and never had an odor. The best thing would be is to check back with your surgeon and have him/her take a look at it. Tanner. Ref Tummy Tuck Infection.
