In brief: If

If you have any sedation or general anesthesia you would need someone to stay with you the night of surgery.
If local anesthesia is used only you wouldn't need someone to stay with you. Check with your surgeon for more specific guidance.

In brief: If

If one of my patients has a chin augmentation with just local anesthesia they don't need anybody to care for them. If a patient has some form of general anesthesia i never let them stay alone the night of surgery.
Having said that, follow your surgeon's instructions.
