In brief: 1 to 2 weeks

Hydrocele, varicocele, inguinal hernia, some femoral hernias are approached surgically via a small incision at the groin.
These are typically elective surgical procedures and the incision is closed with suture material that is not visible, dissolves under the skin in 6 to 12 weeks and appear "healed up" at the first post operative visit, 1 to 2 weeks after the surgical procedure.
