In brief: Depends

The operation itself takes little time- and wounds heal in six weeks, you will feel normal in a few days.
Whatever they do inside dictates more the recovery than the holes for surgery.

In brief: Depends upon...

As with any/all surgical procedures the answer depends upon; the skill of the surgeon; your overall physical health; and severity of the 'key hole' prior to surgery.
When compared to traditional surgical techniques; laparoscopic procedures generally have much shorter recovery periods.
