Is tumescent liposcution painful?The only discomfort you will feel are the initial pinches when we begin to numb the area. These are not even as painful as getting your blood drawn. Once the area is numbed, you won't feel anything.
Recovery after tumescent liposuction is actually far less painful than traditional liposuction since the local numbing wears off slowly and provides lasting pain control. Also, there is no nausea or sick feeling that sometimes occurs after sedation.
