How long will the patient stay in hospital?

In the vast majority of cases, this operation is performed as a day case. Most people can go home after surgery. We recommend that patients sleep well propped up in bed with 3-4 pillows, and that they avoid coughing, stooping or bending in the days following surgery. These actions can increase the venous pressure in the head and neck area and contribute to bleeding from the wound edges.
