How Long Does It Take to the See the Full Visible Results of Chin and Jaw Implants?

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?

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.
