Post surgery follow up examination should be as prescribed by the doctor. It is generally done till all the tissues have healed completely. Thereafter it is recommended that the follow up should be done on an annual basis. However do check with the doctor if they would like to follow a different protocol as improper follow up schedule can cause complications.
