Chin liposuction.

Compression garments after chin liposuction can be very uncomfortable.  If it is causing you pain, you should discuss with your surgeon to find a new solution.  We have devised special wraps in these situations.

Thank you for your question. Smart Lipo provides a recovery time that ranges from 2 weeks to just a few days, varying based upon the patient and their procedure. You are experiencing some of the swelling that is customary after the procedure. Please follow your surgeon's recovery instructions and be sure to keep your surgeon updated as to your recovery progress. It is always helpful to have pictures on this site.Best wishes,
