What is the recovery time for Chin Implants?
A protective compress will be applied to the chin immediately after the surgery to help the implants take hold sufficiently

During the beginning of chin implant recovery, to help reduce swelling, patients are usually advised to use cold compresses for a few days and to remain restful for about a week

Swelling should be mostly gone within about 3-5 days of surgery

Most chin implant patients are able to return to work, if the job is not physically strenuous, within the first week of recovery

Other low-stress activities can be resumed about 1-2 weeks after surgery, though exercise should be postponed for about 4 weeks
