In brief: Depends...

Kind of a broad question.
There are different types of surgical procedures. Toenail procedures or skin biopsies have little to no down time. Bunions can vary from 6-8 weeks recuperation and more extensive rearfoot surgery may take up to months. Need to restore proper alignment in the joint, restore proper mechanics in the foot, and reduce pain symptoms. Bonus aesthetically pleasing.

What's being considered? Both feet? Many factors affect healing time.
