A strong, well-defined chin can elevate the contours of your face and give you a much more refined profile appearance. Unfortunately, many people are unsatisfied with the size and shape of their chins. If you have a weak or receding chin, it can disrupt your facial harmony, detract from your other features, and negatively impact your overall facial appearance. If you’re interested in enhancing the size, shape, and definition of your chin, you may want to consider chin implant surgery.
What Is the Recovery Like After Chin Implant Surgery?
After your chin implant surgery, you will experience some discomfort, bruising, and swelling in the treated area. If needed, Dr. Poulos will prescribe pain medication to help alleviate your discomfort during recovery. You can also reduce the swelling by sleeping with your head elevated and periodically applying a cold pack. During your recovery, you may also need to wear a compression garment or bandage around your chin and neck to help reduce swelling and promote healing.
Most patients can return to their normal routines around a week after chin implant surgery. However, it’s important to avoid strenuous activity and exercise for at least three or four weeks to allow your body to heal properly.
