When I had mine done I stayed the night, you get better pain med's if you stay, lol. I am a larger guy 6' 4" 310lbs, and it still leaves a rather large bulge on my side with a very large scar, so I dunno about
smaller folks, hope it doesnt really stick out for ya. That is a constant bother with these you can feel bumps and edges,takes some time to get used to it, but it is a godsend for me, I just love it. Hope all goes well for you :)
