The navel piercing can be removed prior to surgery. I recommend re-inserting it after one week of wearing the garment.
Navel Piercing and SmartLipo
Many women have their belly buttons pierced - you will need to remove the ring before having the procedure. (I would allow the piercing to heal completely before having the liposuction procedure)
Belly button rings are not a problem with SmartLipo.
I suggest you allow a new belly piercing to heal for at least a month. Then remove the belly ring prior to Smartlipo. Your results will not be hampered in the least.
