In brief: 2-5 days

If you placed ice on the outside of your face right after the extractions, the selling normally peaks at 48 hours then should stabilize and slowly go down.
If you did not use ice it could go on longer.

In brief: A few days

Maximum swelling usually occurs 2-3 days.
However, if ice packs are applied and there were no complications during the procedure it should be an easy and quick recovery.
