Each physician have different guidelines regarding post operative care. Typically, light activity can resume 5 to 7 to 10 days post surgery. Residual swelling that can take 6 to 12 months to resolve but not noticable to the general public. Consult with your surgeon regarding your case as he or she will know the scope of surgery and the specifics about you.

The recovery instructions vary surgeon to surgeon.  I have attached a link for our post-care instructions but it would be best to discuss with your surgeon
