I would still expect some swelling to be present two weeks after removal of a chin implant.  It may take several months for all of the swelling to subside.  Once this occurs, there is no reason to believe that your chin will not look like it did before your surgery.

Hello, and sorry to hear about the negative experience you had following surgery. You are still experiencing swelling, and it will take some time to get back to normal. It can take up to 6 months or sometimes longer for all of the swelling to resolve. But not to worry, your chin should look like it did prior to having the implant placed. In the meantime, I wold recommend communicating any concerns with your surgeon, as he/she knows the extent of your procedure and exactly what was performed. Thank you, and best of luck with the remainder of your recovery.

Unless more than a routine silastin chin implant was inseerted, your chin should get back to where it was by 3 -6 months. If an external incision was used , the scar will take a year to finalize.
