In brief: About 2 weeks
I assume you mean a newborn.
There are several ways to perform a circumcision, but most are healed in 1-2 weeks.

In brief: About a week.
Infants about a week, or until the ring falls off if a plastibell device was used.
Most older children take about a week unless they have a postoperative bleed under the skin, in which case could take longer.
