While some patients can return home within several hours following the procedure, most find they are more comfortable staying overnight. Bruising, swelling, and some pain can be expected, but this can be managed with medication. Some patients are able to return to some basic activities within the first week, but most typically return to daily routines within two to three weeks. The stitches are usually removed after 10 days; however, you should plan on missing work for a full week to avoid overexertion.
Dr. Zuckerman will discuss your specific needs during recovery in further detail throughout the consultation and surgical process, but stress that it is important to remember every patient reacts to surgery and heals differently.
