As swelling subsides, the results of hand surgery will appear. Your final outcome may not be realized for several months. The end result of your hand surgery is directly related to following your therapist's and plastic surgeon's instructions.
The final outcome of your hand surgery will develop over time. Your outcome cannot be fully predicted.
Although good results are expected from your procedure, there is no guarantee. In some situations, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results with a single surgical procedure and another surgery may be necessary.
