Compression Garments for Chin Implants

Postby 27sunshine27 » Tue Feb 07, 2012 11:00 pm

Did anyone use a compression garment for their chin implant? If so, any suggestions on certain kinds?

Hi. I am not aware that using a compression garment for chin implant is commonly done. I'd worry about the implant shifting. I didn't wear one and things turned out fine. Took a while for swelling to go down, my smile to get back to normal and numbness to go away from my lips and chin. I suggest that you talk to your doctor first. Good luck.

How long did it take for your sweeling to go down?

I did not have a compression garment for chin implant. I am almost 6 weeks post-op and still have swelling and my smile is not right yet. PLEASE post regarding swelling and/or smile returning. I'm so worried.
