  • After you are done with genioplasty (major surgery udner General Anesthesia) there will be swelling and slight discoloration of the treated area. But this will subside within several weeks if you take adequate precaution as said to you by your operating surgeon. The sutures will be removed after a week of procedure. You may lack sensitivity in the chin or lip area but don't worry, it will be only temporary. Here are some instruction that should be taken care of :

    1. Dont eat or drink anything after midnight before surgery
    2. Take antibiotics as prescribed before and after the surgery
    3. After the surgery have someone nearby who can help you for at least 24 hours post surgery
    4. Restrict to soft or liquid diet for at least a week of surgery.
