Liposuction is performed under anesthesia which makes the patient feel comfortable throughout the procedure. Generally, the surgical experience will not be painful because, during the process, the patient will be unconscious.
Effect of anesthesia persists for 12 to 24 hours, so dizziness and nausea can occur, and the only discomfort after liposuction is described as soreness or tenderness. The day after liposuction procedure the quality of pain is similar to sunburn or to muscle soreness that one might experience after having worked-out too harshly.
