After the operation the surgeon stitches up the wound. Thereafter the chin is supported by an adhesive tape dressing for a period of approximately one to two weeks.

The stitches are removed after 10 to 14 days. During the first few days swelling and bruises are normal but will disappear automatically within a couple of weeks.

During the first two weeks after the operation you should eat soft food in order to avoid major swelling due to intensive movement of the chin.
