Completely silly, vain and unusual question.

I am scheduled for TVH on 12/9 and logic tells me that I will need to remove my belly button piercing for the procedure. It is made of surgical steel but something about the possible transfer of electrical current during cauterazation means it comes out. So here is the strange question. Can I use an acrylic post rather than steel in my piercing or do I need to leave it open? How soon will I be able to get the piercing back in place?

I told you it was a silly and vain question but that piercing was a reward to myself on my last birthday for losing 60 lbs and being on the downward cycle of 100 lbs. my issues have stalled things out but I have retained the 60 off and I don't want to have to have the area repierced if I don't have to.

I have my belly button pierced and have taken it out for surgeries before and it's fine. I have left it out for a few weeks with no problems.

One of my incisions is in my belly button. Best ask your doctor.
