Is it normal to be swollen and bloody the day after the rhinoplasty ?

I had it done last night and when I got home, i change the cotton thats stuck under my nose so the blood wouldnt go down to my lips and it has eased a bit but hasnt stop. And my swelling got worse! The briuses are brownish now, but face got more puffy! Is this normal ?

It is quite normal to experience swelling, bruising, and bloody nasal discharge after rhinoplasty.  Be assured that all will subside over time and are self limited.
