In brief: One-two weeks

Your post-operative healing time will vary, usually ranging from one-two weeks.
If concerned, see your surgeon for post-op evaluation.

In brief: Not a problem

The healing takes place from the inside out.
The gum will heal after the inside allows it to do so – this usually takes 1-2 months. This is not a problem and you will probably not notice it after the 1st week.
