Returning to Work
You should be able to return to work after 2 weeks, depending on the level of physical activity. You are advised not to do any heavy lifting bending, straining, or pushing for the next 3 to 4 weeks. Your energy level may not return to normal for the next couple weeks.
You will be swollen and bruised for about three to five weeks following surgery. You should be able to see the results of the reduction after this time, but it may take up to a year to see complete results.
