Discomfort is always a possibility. This maybe dependent on the donor area involved with the surgical procedure. These procedures transplant tissue from one area of the mouth (usually the palate) to another area. In some cases other donor tissue, not from the palate, can be used to greatly enhance the comfort of the procedure.
As with any surgery infection and swelling is possible post operatively.
