I recently got my belly button piercing and I'm positive that one day I will get sick of it. I just need some reassurance that it can be surgically closed at any time. If this surgery does exist, how much would it cost?

Yes it is relatively easy to close this belly button piercing. It would be similar to closing apierced earlobe and can be done under local anesthesia in the office.
Can you surgically close a belly piercing?
Yes, you can surgically close a belly piercing. It would be a fairly simple procedure that could be done in a surgeon's office.
