Chin Implant Recovery
Once Dr. Landford is finished with your Chin Implant procedure, you will be placed in our recovery room until you come out of sedation. Once she feels that you are capable of going home, you will be released from our care and able to return home. It’s advisable to have a relative or friend available to give you a ride and even help you for the first few days of your initial recovery.
Initially, there may be some swelling or bruising that occurs, although these will resolve over the first two weeks. You may also experience some mild to moderate discomfort, but Dr. Landford will prescribe the appropriate pain medications to keep you comfortable at home. You will also be given some suggested dietary modifications to promote successful healing in the first week or so post-surgery.
Most patients are ready to return to work or school in about three to five days, with an expected full Chin Implant recovery to take approximately two to six weeks. Once you are completely healed, your face will be balanced and your chin will look stronger.
