Post Tissue Graft with swelling

Ship, I would like to have your opinion. On 3/7/2001, I had a tissue graft done above #5 to cover 3mm of recession. I have swelling on most of the right side of my face. I am not taking any medication for inflammation or pain. I have a facial laser procedure scheduled on next Wednesday and I should not use aspirin, ibuprophen, NSAID's, or anything similar. At this time, I do not want medication. How long should I expect the swelling? Thank You.

Some swelling is to be expected after any surgical procedure... I would suggest that you take ibuprofen to help reduce the swelling more quickly however I'd expect the swelling to resolve by itself in 3 to 5 days after the surgery. Also follow your post operative directions to the letter and use the Peridex rinse as your doctor prescribed. Good Luck!
