Typical Recovery Time
Stitches inside the mouth are usually removed at the one-week point. Patients should rest in bed for the first day or two after a Los Angeles chin implant procedure. In most cases our Los Angeles chin implant patients are back at work in a week– sometimes less. It is important to avoid strenuous activities during healing. Regular exercise can be resumed in about two weeks. Los Angeles chin implant patients should avoid contact sports or any activity that may result in a blow to the face. For most chin implants patients, swelling and bruising subsides over a period of several days.
