Getting Back to Activities
Video transcript: The recovery period for suture technique versus incisional technique is slightly different.
With the suture technique most people can go back to normal activities within a few days. With the incisional technique, I think it’s really important that people take it easy for the first week. They shouldn’t do any heavy lifting or significant exercise and also they’ll have some stitches that can be seen outside of the skin and those need to be removed after a week.
For most people they take a week off from work with the incisional technique but probably don’t need that much with the suture technique.
