In brief: Depends
It would depend on what kind of sinus surgery you had (open cut in your gum line or "endosinus surgery" done with flexible telescopes.
It also depends on the extent of your surgery and what you had done. In general, facial numbness is not normal, and you should see your surgeon soon about this. Good luck!
