In Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery, how does the hand function after the ligament is severed? Does it grow back?

I’ve been reading about the surgery (may need it one day), and I’m a bit worried about what I’m reading.

It’s done by severing a ligament band over the tendons, right? Doesn’t the hand need those to keep the tendons in place?

Does the ligament heal back? Does it scar over? What’s the likelihood of it repairing itself?

It seems pretty damaging at first glance, and I wonder how much function you get back afterward.
