Closing up a piercing hole?

During pregnancy, I had to take out my navel barbell. There's now a small hole remaining that I'd like to close up. I anticipate a small scar from the procedure but would prefer that to the hole that's there now. A friend back home had a facial piercing closed up by a plastic surgeon, so I'm expecting to go that route.

Anyone had something like this done in Switzerland (ideally Zurich)?

Why not just let it close up on its own?

Re: Closing up a piercing hole?

I'm not sure how big the hole is, but the holes for my ear piercings closed up on their own once I stopped wearing earrings.

Mine grew over on its own after awhile. My pregnancy didn't have an effect on it. I wouldn't pay money to have someone close it.

Re: Closing up a piercing hole?

i took a piercing out around 8 years ago but it hasnt closed up, maybe yours will, maybe it wont.

If its not a gaping hole i would just leave it unless it really bothers you.

Re: Closing up a piercing hole?

my belly piercing closed up by itself after two (almost) back-to-back pregnancies.

Because I doubt it will. My ears never did close up more than a decade later so I doubt the navel one will, especially as it's a bigger hole.
