Is this swelling or is this how my chin will look?

I had a sliding geneoplasty 12 days ago and I hate the way my chin looks. What can I do to get rid of this crease which has gotten worse after surgery?

Swelling!

At such a short time after surgery, the chin can look quite distorted after genioplasty. It will take several months for swelling to completely go away and for you to be able to make judgement about the final result.
