Sagging Skin After Jaw Reduction and Genioplasty? (photo)

Hi, I've just had jaw reduction and genioplasty, it's only been 7days post op but I have quite a bit of sagging skin under the neck. I'm only 26, never had any sagging problems, I've always had very tight skin but due to excess bone removal skin has become loose and dropped under my chin, I never smoked, I'm physically fit with a good good diet and low bf %. Will my skin tighten up over time or will I need to do a procedure, if yes which procedure would be needed.

Its way to early to tell, but you may need submental liposuction. I would wait at least 6 months before making that decision.
