Tummy Tuck And Belly Button Piercing?

Thank you for the question.

Assuming that the bellybutton is healing nicely  and that revision surgery will not be indicated piercing can be done anytime after 3 to 6 months. 

Best wishes.

I like to have my patients wait about 3 months after the surgery before they get their belly button pierced.
