In brief: Chin reduction pain
Chin reduction is generally not a terribly painful recovery.
It can be described as more uncomfortable than painful. The first 3 days are generally the most uncomfortable, but can be controlled with pain medication. Chin reduction is usually easier than chin augmentation in that the surrounding skin and muscle is not stretched but allowed to relax.

Not much. Usually Motrin takes care of the discomfort.
