Piercing is 20 years old, my second pregnancy left stretch marks above and below. There is also an invention above the naval, not sure how that happened. I don't think I have enough loose skin for a tummy tuck. Can anything else be done?

You have adequate skin excess within the bellybutton to remove the small amount of overhanging skin with the piercing. The procedure would leave a small scar, but it would be able to be hidden within the bellybutton so it's not obvious.
