How long does it take to recover from scoliosis surgery?

3 months to 1 year

Scoliosis
There are multiple types of scoliosis. Recovery depends on your age, the location of the surgery, the number of levels fused, your bone quality, and the type of surgery. This question should be discussed with your surgeon as the answer varies quite a bit depending on the exact cause of the scoliosis, many patient factors, and the type of surgery performed.

How long does it take to recover from sinus surgery?

Recovery Sinus Surg

Head-nose
I tell my patients to expect a "head cold" for two weeks after sinus surgery. Most individuals are clogged up, have significant nasty smelling nasal drainage, and may feel facial pressure for a few weeks. Go see my article about recovering from sinus surgery: http://www.twinlakesent.com/AfterSinusSurgery.

How long does it take to recover from an LCL surgery?

Expect 6-9 months

Open-uri20120812-9865-z8u9c5
Like most ligament reconstructions about the knee, an LCL (lateral collateral ligament) reconstruction requires months of formal rehabilitation. Running is not routinely allowed until after 3-4 months. A stepwise progression thereafter allows you to get back to maximal functional recovery between 6 to 9 months.

How long does it take to recover from eyelid surgery?

Varies...

Eye_lift
Much will depend on exactly what type of eyelid surgery you are having done. For example, recovery will vary depending on whether you are having upper and/or lower blepharoplasty surgery performed. There is also variability among different patients. Therefore, best to run this question by your plastic surgeon for as accurate advice as possible.
