In brief: Vary...

The pressure and tension inside varicocele should disappear almost instantly if the procedure is successful.
Its size will gradually decrease with a highly variable pace but never go away completely because its residual tissue mass is still there. But roughly, in 1-2 weeks, you should feel a drastic difference on palpation.

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.
