Today I had a septorhinoplasty, I have minimal bruising but a bit of swelling, just wondering when my swelling & pain will peak?

My bruising is really minimal, a little bit around my eyes... no big deal. I'm swelled up a bit around my eyes, apples of my cheeks, and between my eyebrows... I had an open septorhinoplasty, and am currently taking percocet every 3-4 hours. I also have internal splints as well as an external one.

The swelling will usually peak in about 3 days, but there are a number of variables involved here.
