Skin flap over 2nd molar after wisdom teeth removal??

Jun 13, 2019
I had 4 impacted wisdom teeth removed yesterday with IV sedation and local anesthesia. After the local wore off I noticed there was a piece of skin covering my bottom left 2nd molar that prevents me from closing my mouth. Today the skin looks/ feels bigger, and it’s even harder to close my mouth. I also keep accidentally biting it in my sleep and randomly throughout the day. My oral surgeon said this is normal swelling and should go down by Sunday, but I haven’t been able to find anything like this online. The side of my face the skin flap is on is also muuuuchh more swollen than the other side. My mouth/ jaw also hurt a lot more tonight, but I think that’s regular.

Is the skin flap normal???
