Chin Augmentation Surgery Recovery
Chin augmentation surgery, otherwise known as mentoplasty, generally involves undergoing cosmetic chin augmentation to improve facial structure and achieve a more desirable jawline.
To support your body’s healing process during recovery from chin augmentations and other facial surgeries, you must modify your eating habits and other daily routines. These changes to your lifestyle can add dramatically to your stress levels and make it harder to rest, which is incredibly important to your recovery. By choosing to stay at Pearl Wellness during the week(s) following your operation, you can put your mentoplasty recovery into the hands of experienced, trained professionals and focus your energies on allowing your body to heal.
Your Mentoplasty Recovery Timeline
Depending on the extent of your chin augmentation surgery, your chin augmentation surgery recovery time may vary. However, most mentoplasty recoveries involve:
During the first week:
You will require downtime away from work. You may also be prescribed pain medication and/or instructed to use cold compresses to help reduce swelling and bruising.
During the first two weeks:
For up to two weeks, your doctor may recommend you eat a liquid-based diet. You will also need to sleep with your head elevated to help promote healing and reduce swelling.
After the first month:
At this point in your chin augmentation recovery, the pain will be nearly nonexistent but minimal signs of swelling may still exist. Strenuous activity may be allowed at this time by your physician.
After about three months:
Swelling and bruising should completely disappear by this time and your chin augmentation surgery recovery should be complete. Your actual recovery timeline will depend on your body and whether or not there were other procedures done during your surgery.
