SURGERY: This out-patient procedure is well tolerated and common amongst many women. It is performed under general anesthesia. The procedure can last around 2-3 hours.
AFTER SURGERY: The down time is one to two weeks. A patient may return to work in one to two weeks. Generally, most patients return to a normal exercise routine after three weeks of down time. The goal is for patients to take advantage of the down time for appropriate recovery so they can get back into their normal routines as quickly as possible without discomfort.
