Once Chin Implant Has Settled, Will It Look Shorter?

I'm 10 days chin implant post-op and it looks a bit too long (although swelling's subsided). Will it settle in to look shorter?

Chin Implant


10 days after surgery is too early. You may still have swelling, if so it will change. If all the swelling has subsided then the chin will NOT get smaller.

You posted no photos. My guess is that there is a chance it will look shorter. But ask the operating surgeon or post photos.
