I know rhinoplasty takes a full year to see the final results, is the same true for a chin implant and jaw implants due to swelling?
How Long Does It Take to the See the Full Visible Results of Chin and Jaw Implants?

Full healing after chin and jaw implants
The full healing of chin and jaw implants is usually 2-3 months before all visual swelling has subsided. They tend to heal much faster than a rhinoplasty.
Swelling can take over a year to resolve. That is true for nose as well as chin and particularly jaws. However, you should get some idea how things are going after 5-6 months.
