Pain overall is minimal due to nerve blocks and local anesthetic injected at the conclusion of the case. You should expect limited pain for the first 18-24 hours. After this, most patients report mild to moderate discomfort and swelling for a few days which can be easily controlled by analgesics and cold compresses. You are likely to have some continued soreness for a few weeks after surgery usually requiring only anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen.
