In brief: 3 days

After a partial nail valuation the recovery is about 3 days.
If you had a permanent procedure done it may take longer.

In brief: 2 weeks

Depending how healthy you are.
Kids heal quick, diabetics longer. Healthy, nondiabetic, nonsmoker, 48 yo should heal in two weeks as long as you do what your doctor instructed you to do: dressing changes, soaks, no sports, etc. Things to look for cherry red, swelling, increase pain or pus (milky substance) if you do call your doctor right away as those are signs of infection.
