You should not feel pain during your liposuction procedure. Detroit cosmetic surgeon Dr. Rifai uses a local anesthetic with liposuction procedures to numb the treatment area.
During your recovery from liposuction, you may experience some discomfort that generally feels like muscle fatigue around the treated area. Prescription medications can help you manage the discomfort in the first few days after surgery and then over the counter medications can be used if you find them necessary.
Remember that each patient responds differently to cosmetic surgery procedures and heals at their own rate. During your consultation with Dr. Rifai, be sure to ask about your liposuction recovery if you are concerned about pain management. We are happy to answer patient questions and help you feel comfortable with your liposuction procedure and recovery.
