Is it normal for the site of a dental bone graft to swell up on day 2?

I had a dental bone graft/gum restoration 2 days ago after a recent extraction. This afternoon, I noticed that there is swelling in the area and what was flat is now standing up with the stitches stretched around it. Is this normal?
