The operation of navel piercing has certain risks, most of which are associated with the very technology of the procedure. Some of the most serious consequences of a puncture include infection, nerve damage, allergic reactions, and heavy bleeding.

Step 1

The navel is one of the most popular piercing sites. However, this area takes a relatively long time to heal compared to other points on the body. The puncture site can become inflamed as a result of body movements (for example, when turning or moving to a sitting position). The presence of jewelry in the wound and frequent changes in body position disrupt the formation of new tissue, which causes corresponding painful sensations and increases the recovery period. Irritation and inflammation can occur after the procedure as a result of perspiration, wearing tight and tight clothing.

Step 2

Infection during the piercing process is also a common complication. The chances of infection are high if the operation was performed in non-sterile conditions using poorly processed instruments and materials. Redness, burning, and pain in the navel can be a symptom of an infection. It is worth noting that the penetration of bacteria into the wound is possible even if the instructions for caring for the puncture are not followed, which should be reported by a specialist after the end of the procedure.

Step 3

Excessive bleeding and nerve damage can occur if the piercing was not done correctly or properly. Injury to blood vessels and endings can cause a complete lack of sensitivity in the affected area. It should be noted that after a puncture there is a likelihood of an allergic reaction characterized by skin rashes. To avoid the risk of allergies, jewelry made of stainless iron, gold (8 ct) and titanium should not be placed in the navel. It is also not recommended to use silver immediately after surgery as there is a risk of skin darkening.

Step 4

After a puncture, there is the possibility of a colloidal scar, which is a pinkish scar that occurs at the site of the wound. The appearance of a colloid is possible as a result of a violation of the ability of healthy tissue to heal in a part of the body. Persistent inflammation can be caused by jewelry made of poor quality metal that is too small or too large.

Step 5

A piercing of your belly button can cause unpleasant painful sensations that can affect the quality of your sleep. Before carrying out the operation, it is advisable to consult with people who have already done piercings. If you decide to make a puncture, you should go to a proven specialized salon, where they provide quality services and use only sterile devices and materials.
