How do I fix saggy navel piercing? (Photo)

I had a belly button piercing and took it out during pregnancy. Now I have this saggy skin left over which sags even more if I put in the belly ring. Is surgery my only option. To fix it?

Scar removal of a belly button piercing

Belly button revision is a common procedure and can be performed by removing the piercing tract and suture closing the remnant scar. Results are fairly consistent and can improve the belly button area.
