Lovers of piercing, but tired of the trivial ring inserted in the navel by the professional who you did it? When the piercing is the navel ‘s best not to give in to the temptation to change too soon, on the contrary, the advice is to keep in check the requirements “fashionable” to avoid any risk or danger infection. That’s when and how to change it properly.


There is no specific deadline or a schedule is valid for all cases. Each navel piercing has its own story and each “carrier” also. To ward off the risks , but applies a rule of common sense, which is always valid: it is better not to change navel piercing before the wound is completely cured and healed, to avert the worst risk, that of infection. Usually the wait can vary from three or four months up to nine or twelve months. Why so much patience? As is easily understood, the area in which you do the navel piercing is not any area, indeed. If the first piercing inserted by the professional in the skin of the abdomen near the navel is made ​​of metal surgical and sterilized in autoclave, so as to reduce almost to zero any danger of contamination or infection, the jewel that fits alone is not as safe (is handled by several people and as far as you disinfect it will never be sterilized as a specialist), so better not put it before actually healing complete wound.


What to do?

If it’s the right time, if the wound has healed and the piercing can be changed safely, better not to overlook certain rules of hygiene, which fall into the things you should know before you decide to do a navel piercing but not only. First, before you make any “maneuver” is essential to wash hands thoroughly using an antibacterial cleanser. Then, better clean with the same meticulousness also the jewel to be inserted, with the help of a disinfectant .

At this point you just have to take action, unscrewing the closure of the jewelry you wear and sliding it gently to force too much. Removed the old go-ahead to the new: new piercings must be inserted with the same delicacy and care. If you find it hard to pull out the old jewelry or insert the new one, if they appear strange redness or swelling, better consult a professional who performed the piercing and, in the case of active infection, your doctor, to begin appropriate treatment.
