Swelling and Bruising

Some swelling and bruising is normal after implant surgery. Generally swelling takes about three days to reach its peak, after which it will slowly discolour with time and subside over about ten days.

Bruising can vary from some minor facial bruising to more extensive bruising that may extend to the orbits or down the neck. We will supply you with ice packs to be applied regularly to the face for the first 48 hours.
