Short: Laparoscopy tubal ligation healing can be as short as 2-4 days, but a larger abdominal incision takes a little longer to heal.

No recovery w Essure: Essure is a simple technique to provide permanent birth control that can be done easily in the office in a few minutes under local anesthesia. There is no recovery since no incisions are made. You can resume normal activites when it is over. It has the lowest failure rate of any method. The inserts cause tubal scarring over 3 months effectively sealing the tubes closed without surgery.
