In brief: Never ...

Never disappear but just collapse and shrink to obliteration if done successfully.

In brief: Several weeks

The size of the varicocele (enlargement of the veins) will decrease in several weeks.
Embolization can be used if surgical approaches are contra-indicated as success rates with surgery are higher.
