Myth: The Recovery Will Be Lengthy & Painful

Cosmetic surgeries are not all created equal. One of the things our patients appreciate most about the surgery is the rapid recovery time associated with it.

You can expect to return to work and most regular activities by one-week post-procedure. If you choose to combine your chin implant in Toronto with additional facial surgery, the timeline and details of recovery will change accordingly.

Myth: It Will Look Fake or Obvious
