Specific recovery time frames vary from person to person, depending on their procedure and their overall physical health. Generally, most patients leave the hospital 4-5 days following surgery. Most patients will continue to need the help of family, friends and/or home nursing care during their first week back at home. It usually takes 4-6 weeks for the breast bone and chest muscles to heal, and patients gradually return to their usual daily routine.
