Believe it or not, not that painful. Most of the patients complain of stuffiness in the nose. But not pain.

Orthognathic surgery may involve surgery in one jaw or both jaws. Any surgical procedure is usually accompanied with some level of pain. Pain perception and how individuals react and respond to pain varies from person to person.
