Will the Two Hard Notches Under Jaw on Each Side of my Chin After Genioplasty Go Away?

I'm on Day 4 after my sliding genioplasty procedure for my weak/recessed chin. There are two notches on the side and under my jawline, on each side of my chin, that's quite hard. I imagine this is where the screws went in. It's not just swollen, it's actually hard, like marbles. Will this go away eventually or is it permanent?
