How much could my chin shrink (vertical wise) right after a chin implant till the final result?

I had a chin implant as well as a rhinoplasty 5 days ago. My surgeon said the chin won't change from the front. At the moment my chin looks very long and way longer then how my chin was before the implant.

In my experience, as chin swelling resolves following an implant, there is a reduction in size from all dimensions. So you may see improvement with the vertical height over the next several weeks. Good luck!
