Chin Augmentation Recovery
Generally, after a chin implant procedure there will be swelling for about 6 – 8 weeks. The majority of your swelling will decrease before your friend’s wedding, but it should not be that noticeable. However, I would advise you to have future cosmetic procedure after any big events in case of any issues. Speak to your facial plastic surgeon about how you can reduce swelling faster.
In terms of the type of approach to the placement of the implant, the intra oral approach does have a higher risk of complications than making a small incision under the chin. Although with an intra oral incision, you avoid having an external incision, you really should have an extensive discussion with your facial plastic surgeon about these increased risks such as nerve injury and infection. Chin implants make a fantastic improvement with facial balance and really help ward off the aging process so they are overall a great procedure. Much success, enjoy the wedding and have a great open talk with your surgeon so you can really enjoy the whole process.
