In brief: 4 to 6 weeks
If the surgery is done without cutting the abdominal wall, recovery is much faster.

In brief: Depends
Traditional AAA surgery is being challenged by the less invasive endograft procedures.
You need to see a vascular surgeon who is comfortable with both open and endovascular techniques to have your best options. Depends on what you decide to pursue your recovery can be anywhere from a few days to few weeks.
