Lower jaw implants usually take between 1 and 2 hours. Incisions are made inside the lower lip, and dissolving sutures are used. After your surgery, swelling may peak at 24 to 48 hours. Prolonged swelling may occur for several months. Your doctor will inform you of any dietary and exercise restrictions.
