How long is the recovery process for the hand reconstructive surgery?

Your doctor will tell you how soon it’s safe to resume your activities after this surgery.

The factor that dictates how soon you will be able to resume your activities after hand reconstruction is the speed of your recovery. The faster you recover, the sooner you can return to work.

Your recovery depends on the type of surgery you undergo. It can take from several weeks to several months to achieve full recovery. You can enhance your healing process by following your doctor’s aftercare guidelines. Your therapy, for example, plays an important role in your recovery so it’s important to meet with your therapist and practice your exercises thoroughly.
