At what point will the swelling and hardness formed after Chin Liposuction go away?

Chin Liposuction Aftercare: compression, hyperbaric oxygen, Venus Legacy
I suggest all my patients to wear the neck compression 24 hours a day for 3-5 days after the procedure. To speed up healing, you can try hyperbaric oxygen and Venus Legacy radiofrequency treatments. It can take a few months for swelling to subside. If you are concerned, contact your Dr. Best, Dr. Emer.
In duration secondary to liposuction can take 8 weeks to improve. The numbness can take up to a year to resolve. During the time of healing aggressive massage every night for 10 minutes using a moisturizer can help expedite the process.
Swelling will typically last 6-8 weeks and that hard, lumpy feel can last 3-4 months--so try to be patient. I usually place a chin strap for compression for 2-3 days and then continue that at night for 2 weeks or so. Typically compression will not help that much this far out. Everyone has a different protocol, you may still have a very good result. Good luck, Jane
