Will I have a scar after my chin augmentation and what downtime can I expect?

Depending on the treatment plan decided at your initial consultation, an incision will either be made inside the mouth along the inside of the lower lip (so invisible to the eye) or discreetly under the chin, so is hidden well.  You may be given a support garment at the end of the surgery which is worn both day and night for a week following your procedure to help control swelling and reduce possible movement of the implant. You may experience mild discomfort for up to five days’ post-surgery, however most patients can resume their normal day to day activities after one week.  Your surgeon will advise you to refrain from strenuous exercise for around six weeks as it can take up to this point to see your final results.
