Swelling after face lift
Swelling under the chin is quite normal after a facelift.
Certainly I would get in contact with your surgeon to be certain that you are healing as expected.
The area under the chin happens to be the most frequently revised after facelift surgery. You can consider procedures such as a submentoplasty if things do not resolve over 6 to 12 months. I would stay in close contact with your surgeon as minimal procedures such as steroid injections, massage, silicone sheet applications can be very helpful during the early healing period.
