I think I remember learning somewhere that lips heal very quickly.

The ones where I have to move it a bunch (knuckle, knees) seem to be the longest and of course the most painful.

Google says bones/ligaments and mouth, respectively.

I was always told the eyes were the fastest...guess someone lied to me.

@mtm2: Me too. My ex did some damage to her eye and her eye-type-doctor said the same to me.

The heart is what heals the slowest and yet, sometimes, the fastest.

Yes, I accept your groans.

@curtisuxor: No groan from me; I think your response is clever, witty, and all too true.

@jsimsace: ligament and tendon heal slower than bone. It depends on the blood flow, the lower it is the slower the healing. Bones have higher blood flow than you think. So if you get a cut on your thigh and top of foot at the same time the thigh will be done healing first. It also follows that for your eye will depend on what part is injured, and any disease you have that interferes.

Someone once told me that the months of healing time is about equal to the number of letters in the names. Bone - 4 months, tendon, 6 months, muscle, 6 months, ligament, 8 months.
