Depends on meds: Your surgeon likely used a postoperative mydriatic/cycloplegic agent that keeps your pupil dilated & you ciliary muscle relaxed, both to ease postoperative pain.

I had a vericocele embolization awhile ago and the vericocele is fixed but now my scrotum is sagging. How can I fix this and get a "tighter" scrotum ?
Leave it alone: Please leave this alone. Let it heal on it's own. Do not do anything to get a 'tighter' scrotum. Pay attention to the instructions the surgeon gave you for post op healing. Your body leaves your scrotum loose when the body or internal scrotal heat is high. If the body temp or the scrotal temp is low it will draw it closer to the body. Your scrotum is fully of tissue and fluid trying to heal it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The umbilicus can bulge, a weakness of the tissues between the R & L muscles. It gets smaller after delivery but does not go back to normal. If there is a hernia, a pouch of internal abdominal fat or intestinal contents, a small one may not need surgery. Exercises with ab muscles don't treat it. ...Read more
I have phimosis and tear my foreskin by accident is it normal for the foreskin to shrink again? How soon can I resume stretching?
Normal: Torn area will contract ; scar causing shrinkage. You probably require prescription strength steroid cream like Betamethasone or kenalog (triamcinolone) so that foreskin can loosen.
