How fast can swelling from orthognathic or facial bone reduction surgeries be gone?

Orthognathic surgery (corrective jaw surgery, double jaw surgery, or two jaw surgery) is not for celebrities any more. A lot of people who suffer from lantern jaw or asymmetry have received orthognathic surgeries. Also, there are many people who get orthognathic surgeries for an aesthetic purpose.

Osteotomy surgery, such as orthognathic surgery or facial bone reduction surgery, requires long time to recover because of swelling and bruises. Dr. Hyeyoung Kim from the facial contouring center of Id hospital said, “In the case of facial bone surgery, swelling will peak in two or three days after surgery. After that, swelling and bruises will gradually go away, but still at least one or two weeks of recovery time are needed.”

Above all patients need consistent follow-ups for swelling care, orthodontic treatment, etc., it is important to choose a hospital which has a well-developed system for taking care of patients to the end. Also, patients need to gargle to prevent inflammation and exercise lightly to promote blood circulation and relieve swelling.

Receiving professional swelling care would be another method.

According to Dr. Minjoo Kim from Id dermatology, “many patients visit dermatology after surgery for swelling care,” and “not only they are greatly interested in swelling care in order to return their daily lives as fast as possible, but also lifting or laser procedures for elasticity of skin after orthognathic surgery or facial contouring surgery.”

‘The premium de-aging center’ at Id dermatology has swelling care program for patients who got plastic surgeries and lifting program to enhance elasticity for patients who got orthognathic or facial contouring surgeries.
