I am 4 weeks post-op (love handles and abs) and just now I am experiencing the pins and needles feeling. I slept (or atleast tried to) for the first time last night without the compression garment and I won't be doing the same tonight. I go for massages every other day, both ultrasound and hand, and they still hurt like crazy. Today was number 18 and I think I'm going to wait for the nerves to finish "waking up." The results are incredible, I had 16 pounds removed (I'm 6'2"), and the love handles are gone, as well as the belly. Would I do it again, yeah, but would dread it greatly. Not to say that misery loves company, but I feel much better to know I am not alone in this long and slow recovery.

Most patients experience bruising, swelling, and pain when have a chin liposuction. Other possible side effects include scarring, infection, and rarely skin necrosis.

"According to my research, liposuction does not have any risks that are specific to liposuction. However, any surgery involves risk. Avoiding excessive liposuction can decrease these risks, as can not scheduling liposuction with other procedures, such as a facelift. Some risks associated with surgery include bruising, swelling, infections, blood clots in the lungs, and nerve damage."

Any form of liposuction can be painful, depending on the patient and the procedure. Generally pain is felt during the recovery and healing stage, not during the procedure itself.

Liposuction will vary in pain depending on the individual.Most patients say that it is more discomfort than it is painful.Doctors will usually perscribe pain meds to help alleviate the pain.Newer techniques and improved technology like the UAL and the tumescent technique, help patients not feel as much pain.
