I am not sure if that swelling is from your garment or not, I suggest seeing your PS or another board certified surgeon to discuss this

Submental Smartlipo requires a chin strap for a specific amount of time. Each surgeon has a different timeline, be sure to check with your surgeon before removing it. Best of luck with your recovery!
