Recovering your Instagram account means that you have to win an appeal. You will be required to submit an appeal as to why you think your account should be reinstated. Your appeal will be reviewed by Instagram’s moderators and if your appeal is valid, you will get your account back. You may be asked to send a selfie as verification.
You can also use Instagram’s Help Center page to submit your appeal. You will need to fill in the form and submit it for review.
