Are lips and cheeks expected to swell after a Chin Implant?

What degree should I expect? Could an implant procedure for a chin cause edema in other areas of the face or neck besides the chin? Where?

Limited, temporary swelling is normal after chin imploant surgery. Swelling of the lips, cheeks, or neck is very rare.
