    On Friday I have to have surgery- and they told me I have to take all of my piercings out for it. The whole procedure should be 4 hours, and I have a naval and nose piercing. Will they close up? I don't want to have to repierce them, it was hard enough getting the courage to pierce them the first time...

    I've had my nose pierced for 3 years and if I take out the ring the hole there starts to close up after about 2 hours and is closed enough by the next morning to where I cant put a ring back in and need it redone. It might differ from person to person, but there is a chance that you will need to either repierce it yourself or have it redone.

    I've had the naval piercing since May, and the nose piercing for over a year.

    the naval ring may be alright for the time you have it out, but it might be a bit touchy and sore getting it back in and afterwards. keep clean and void of affection.

    In case anyone's wondering, they didn't close up. u do have to wiggle it a little more than usual to try to get it in, but it didn't close.

    the surgery itself though- ughhhhh- i woke up screaming afterwards.

    you could ask if you can but in placic rings insted of metal rings. if that would make a diff.

    what kind of surgery was it?
    i'm having a back surgery in less than 2 weeks and have a nose, a nipple, a tongue, a lip and a tragus piercing...
    i didn't think it might be a problem :/

    FYI, deadonceagain, ear pirceings and body piercings are done differently. body piercings are done with a hollow needle. Ears are done with a sharp post on an earring...or a safety pin in my case.
