Chin Implant/lipo Pain? (photo)

Im 26, I had a rhinoplasty, chin implant and a little lipo underneath my chin/neck area, today is the 3rd day and the pain in the neck area is the worse. I feel as if I had a lumpy line forming and it hurts to the touch, but Im not sure if its just swollen :/ help should I wait it out?
