Genioplasty, swollen chin (Photo)

i had a sliding genioplasty 1 month ago abroad and notice a line under my lower lip where the incision and sutures are located inside my lower lip. Most of the sutures have dissolved except for 2 or 3 , and my chin looks a little swollen. Is the swelling normal would it go down with time? and will the line still be visible , please advise.

it may be that you needed jaw surgery instead of chin surgery. Genioplasty in small jaws creates unusual folds
