well that depends... when you first pierce it your navel will swell so after some time it may seem like the skin is shrinking but the swelling is just going down.thats what heppend with mine but if u feel that this is still odd u should go see your doctor about it. ... It does happen, just like with surface piercings, the piercist will warn you that over time the skin will shrink. its nothing serious though.

The point of piercing is to leave the barbell in place not take it out after getting the piercing done, but if you need to remove it you can do so after two weeks, but only if you intend to leave it out all together and have the piercing close up. The piercing will shrink very quickly and removal should be on a very short term period.

How many hours till it closes up-belly ring?

Your question isn't very clear, but I will give it a shot. The time it takes for a navel piercing to close or "heal up" depends on how long you have had the piercing. The longer the piercing has been in place with jewellery, the longer it will take for the piercing to close with the jewellery removed. Generally if you have had the piercing with jewellery over a year the piercing can take several months to shrink down to the point where you can't put jewellery into the piercing any longer. If you have only had the piercing for a few months then it can take a few weeks for the piercing to close.
