After a mentoplasty, you can expect not to feel much pain. Maybe a little pain in the first 3 – 5 days but your medication will ease this discomfort. There may be some swelling, bruising and tightness around your chin area but the compression garment will help reduce this.

Most people can return to normal activities after 10 days. Avoid exercise in these 10 days of recovery and don’t take part in contact sport for 6 – 8 weeks. For the first 2 weeks eat liquid-based or soft food only.  You should be fully recovered after 6 weeks.
