Swelling after chin implant and liposuction
Most likely what you are seeing is swelling, especially if you loved what you saw on postoperative day 1. Swelling is unfortunately part of every postoperative recovery and can cause the patient and doctor sometimes considerable stress. After liposuction, the fat cells that were traumatized that weren't suctioned away will eventually die off and continue to improve your profile. Hope this helped. Best of Luck!
Don't Worry! And Let's Add Some Ultherapy!
This still could be swelling after your procedure and it's too soon for your final results. I recommend adding RF treatments like thermage with ultherapy in order to tighten this area. Best, Dr. Emer.
