Wisdom tooth: The nerve could have been damaged during removal, contact the surgeon and let them know, they may decide to put you on steroids.

Depends: I'm assuming you mean on your lip and chin. If this is the same day as surgery, that could be local anesthetic. If it is several days later, there may have been some injury to the sensory nerve. This usually gets better on its own, but it is best to inform your surgeon as they know all about your individual situation.
