When should I have the anchor sutures taken out after a facelift and chin lift?

It really depends on the doctor after your facelift and chin implant. I would go by what he is used and find works for him.  I usually take out anchor sutures one month later.  Not every doctor has anchor sutures placed and will just have you come back 7 days later approximately to have the sutures removed.  Anchor sutures are placed to help with the healing and are usually few in number. Basically, the longer you have the sutures in the greater the chance for scarring and train tracking.  Train tracking is essentially the appearance of train tracks due to the sutures leaving marks where they were.
