Early postop after neck lipo and chin implant
It's very normal to have swelling and bruising after neck liposuction and chin implant at 4 days postop. As long as the swelling is not getting bigger, you should be fine. In fact you should start to see the swelling slowly to subside. As the swelling start to go down then you will gradually see your result.
Neck Liposuction and Chin Implant Postop Day 4
At 4 days after liposuction and chin implant, the swelling can be significant. Your plastic surgeon should examine you to make sure there is nothing else of concern. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

Recovery after chin augmentation and liposuction of the neck
The description of your recovery after chin augmentation and liposuction of the neck sounds perfectly normal. It is not unusual to still have swelling and bruising four days after the procedure. Both of these issues should start to improve now, but swelling can take several months to resolve completely.
