If you only require surgery in one jaw, typically 60-90 minutes. If surgery is needed in both jaws, 2-3 hours.
Depending on the surgery, can be as short as 3-4 hours and as long as 12 or more. Depends on the complexity. This is a question you should ask your surgeon performing the procedure.

It depends on the case, but on average, several hours.
