Having chin implants done is one of the most dramatic things you can do to complete your profile. The surgery is very straightforward and the complication rates are very low, making it the ideal choice for those looking to enhance their appearance.
Having a thorough understanding of what the procedure entails post-operation will help you speed up the recovery process. Your surgeon will provide detailed instructions on your post-operative care, but below is a brief overview of what you should expect.
Will I be able to drive home after surgery?
No. You should make arrangements with someone to drive you home after your operation.
What symptoms can I expect following the surgery?
What precautions should I take?
What are some things I can do to make my recovery period easier?
Before leaving for your surgery, you should create a recovery area in your house. This will ensure that you have everything you need within reach, which will prevent unnecessary stress and movement.
How long before I can return to my normal activities?
The great part about chin implant surgery is that the recovery period is very short. Generally, people head back to work after a few days of rest. Although you may resume your normal schedule shortly, it is highly recommended that you avoid activities which might cause an impact to your face – like contact sports or activities that require a helmet – for 3-4 weeks.
