After surgery, there might be bandages or dressings to reduce swelling. A small tube can be temporarily placed under the skin to drain excess fluid. Besides, there might be stitches or sutures on your incisions that are not absorbable. These will be removed by your surgeon within the next two or three days after surgery. You may be tender, feel tired and experience moderate pain for several days following the surgery, but this can be managed through pain medication. Most patients are able to return their daily activities within one week but be prepared that your recovery may be longer.
