What Is The Recovery Difference Between Standard vs Custom Jaw Implants?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have seen your comment about swelling and the timeline it takes to go down on a weekly basis for jaw augmentation. However since this is based off the custom implant, I was wondering if you could give a similiar breakdown for a standard implant and how long the swelling would take to come down?

A: The recovery process is the same regardless of the implant type. The only difference between standard vs custom facial implants is usually size and the scope of the swelling.
