In brief: Unclear

Usually pain from any genioplasty lasts about 10-14 days and is well controlled with pain meds.
If there is no bone work being done, the pain is much less and lasts only a a few days.

In brief: Sign of fixation

Usually the pain with repair will depend on the degree of rigid fixation in combination with the extent of soft tissue mobilization.
The use of plates and screws has tended to improve boney union rates which tends to occur around 3-6 weeks and will diminish the degree of skeletal discomfort and pain.
