The submandibular gland excision takes approximately an hour and a half to complete, and patients can expect to leave four hours after arriving. A small drain is placed under the skin by the incision and is removed the following morning.
With this procedure, patients can expect some mild discomfort which should subside over the days following the operation. Patients resume their normal activities in as little as one or two days, and there are no dietary restrictions necessary with a submandibular gland excision. Saliva production should not be affected.
