Belly ring after tummy tuck


If you haven't had any complications following your abdominoplasty it is very reasonable to have you belly button pierced at 6 months post op.  To be certain you should discuss this with your surgeon.

After abdominoplasty piercing fine if all else uncomplicated


If all else was uncomplicated following your abdominoplasty and if scars are soft,  piercing at 6 months should be fine.
