The belly button piercing repair is a procedure to close the hole that is made when you have your belly button pierced.  There was a trend for belly button piercings years ago and many people have subsequently removed the belly button bars or accessories.  There is a hole left behind from the tract created from the piercing.  The piercing leaves a hole above the belly button and on the upper inner part of the belly button.  This procedure helps to close the holes caused by belly button piercings.
