How Long Does It Take The Swelling To Go Down After Chin And Jaw Angle Implants?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I recently got a chin implant along with mandible implants. I am 9 days post op and have huge swelling. My face looks like a complete square at this point and I am worried if it will stay like this. Do you have any suggestions to help with this swelling and edema.

A: This is normal at this early time after surgery and the resolution will be more healing time, Your surgeon should have educated you about this degree of swelling and it will take 2 to 3 months for all of it to go completely away.
