Will there be swelling after the surgery?

For a few days the area will be swollen because the of operation itself. Swelling can be kept to a minimum by using ice. After about a week the body will start laying down healing tissue. This will feel like a firm lump underneath the incision. This is called the “healing ridge.” The “healing ridge” will be mildly tender and will persist for about four weeks until it is reabsorbed.
