How Long Do I Need To Stay After Shoulder Narrowing Surgery?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I was interested in narrowing my shoulders. I would like to know the cost associated with it, and also, as I am in Canada, how long I would need to stay in the states for before it would be safe to fly home. 

I am also interested in knowing how long I would be unable to work at a desk job (until I can type again) after the surgery. 


A: Most patients can go home in 2 to 4 days. That is somewhat influenced by whether you come by yourself or have someone with you.

Typing at a desk is a not problem even a few days after the surgery. The issue is getting to and from work and all that it takes to do so. That is a recovery topic that requires more in depth discussion.
