Bellybutton piercing closed?

Do you think I could reopen my belly piercing? I had it for a year then took it out for about 5 months because I was pregnant and still have some scar tissue?

Update:

I’m no longer pregnant by the way lol just was thinking ab getting it redone now that I’ve had my baby :)

    I wish my body would heal scars. My belly ring never closed and I had mines out for 11 years. Ring slipped back in perfectly. I also have difficulty aging but zero ability to heal. Don’t really know what is up with my skin!

    You could get it repierced, but you can't do that on your own.  "Reopening" isn't really a thing.  If a piercing closes up, you have to pierce it again and go through the entire healing process again because it is a new piercing.  

    So yes, you can get it repierced.  Just be sure to let the piercer know about the history of your piercing, in that you had it for a year and took it out because you got pregnant.  This way they can give you a great piercing that won't look weird in the future as your stomach continues to change after you being pregnant.
