How much pain should I expect after a rhinoplasty and for how long?

If there were a procedure to fix my nose without any pain I would do it in a blink of an eye. I have heard that there is some pain involved during a rhinoplasty recovery, but just how much? Is the pain long term or is it just the first week?

Most of our patients take prescription pain medications for 1-2 days, then switch to Tylenol.
