The amount of pain felt varies from individual to individual, depending on one’s pain threshold. Generally, areas treated with Liposuction are tender to pressure but there is usually no excruciating pain when resting in bed.
There may be a feeling of stiffness when moving about but most of the pain subsides after a few days. It is not a particularly painful operation as the muscles are not disturbed except when suction is performed on large areas of the abdomen. It is then sometimes painful to sit up for the first few days.
