Signs of/How to minimize surface piercing rejection?

I got a surface vertical tragus piercing yesterday, (something like this): The piercer seemed to know exactly what he was doing and had photos of his experience. The procedure was quick and painless. However, I didn't read until later the high rate of rejection associated with this piercing. I am pierced with a curved barbell, 16 gauge I believe. Apparently there is a special surface bar that's supposed to be used to minimize rejection? Do I have any chance of healing this piercing at all? As of now, it's not swollen, red, sore, crusty, nothing. I've been cleaning it regularly, but am still nervous about rejection.
