What is recovery time after surgery to remove a dermoid cyst?

Varies. If the removal is done by laparoscopy then recovery would usually be one or two "down days", but if laparotomy (a larger incision on the abdomen) is performed then expect to not feel great for about a week or two.
Where is it? Treatment for dermoid cyst is complete surgical removal, preferably in one piece and without any spillage of cyst contents. Recovery is based on where the cyst is located.

Hi doc! I'm due to have surgery this Friday with a removal of a dermoid cyst aprrox. 14 cm and I'm in my 2nd trimester. What's the recovery time?

A couple weeks. I'm assuming at 14cm they are doing a laparotomy, so typically you'll be in the hospital a couple days up to 3 typically. Full recovery will likely take 6 weeks, but you will feel much better typically by 2 weeks out. Read more...
