In brief: Yes
Immediately after there will be inflammation from the procedure.
Make sure to keep it clean even when it is sore. A few days it should be gone.

In brief: Yes
Gums will tend to be swollen after a gingivectomy.
If they remain swollen for a a prolonged period of time you need to contact your dentist or periodontist.
