In brief: 6 weeks

It depends on the surgeon since various types of suture can be used in this type of surgery.
It will generally take about 6 weeks to 2 months, depending on the suture type, for the sutures to dissolve but it will take much longer for the healing process and post-operative changes to gradually resolve.
