In brief: It depends

It depends on what operation you are talking about, taking certain medications, and controlling conditions like hypertension and diabetes.
Talk to your doctor if the operation lasting as long as possible is very important to you. This consideration can inform some choices for particular operations, such as heart valve surgery.
