Not abnormal: It is a surgical procedure and depending on severity of impaction, swelling is a post operative symptom which will resolve. Use ice packs to reduce and call your doctor if you do not get resolution.

Not uncommon: Swelling around the mouth, cheeks, eyes and sides of the face is not uncommon. This is a normal reaction by the body to surgery and will help with healing process. Good luck.
