When a chin and/or jaw doesn’t fit the face, it can have a negative impact on the entire facial balance—causing the neck to appear heavier or the nose to appear larger than they actually are. This is where chin augmentation and jawline adjustment can achieve a significant improvement.
Recovery and Results
After jaw and chin augmentation, you can expect swelling and bruising. The swelling may last up to six weeks, but will subside more and more each day. You may also have tightness, pressure, difficulty chewing, and/or tenderness in the treated area during recovery, which can last several weeks. In some cases, a special liquid diet is recommended for one week. Because strenuous activities may prolong swelling, we recommend avoiding any kind of exercise for a minimum of three weeks following the procedure. Taking approximately one week off of normal activities is average for this surgery.
You will see early results fairly quickly as swelling subsides. While it takes 9-12 months for completely final results to be visible, most of the finalized outcome can be seen at approximately three months.
