Recovery time after nipple reconstruction?

Hi! I'm wondering how long it would be the recovery time after nipples reconstruction. I'll be having nipples reconstructed soon and the following day after having morning surgery the day before I have a friend's birthday party I would like to go if possible, Could I go to the party after having had nipples reconstructed the day before? There will be some dancing and games in the party. What do you think? Thanks.

Party yes, dancing no.

Check with your plastic surgeon but recovery should be fairly quick and straightforward. Dancing might be discouraged for a week or two. Good luck.
