In brief: Eye and fAce swellin

It is hard to tell what is going on with your limited description of what you had done.
Was your maxilla or orbit broken and fixed? Please provide a little more information so I could answer the question with more certainty. It is not very normal to have a lot of swelling around plates that were placed for facial fractures.
