Liposuction and fat transfer with a sleeping pill
I do not do liposuction and fat transfer this way except for very small areas.
Because it hurts too much.
Because you were on your stomach, it was not safe to heavily sedate you. I would have done your surgery with general anesthesia.
Liposuction done your way is common in medi-spas and in the offices of non-surgeons.
I do not treat my patients this way because pain is bad for us. Modern surgery's goal is relief of pain as well as on the best possible results.
I am sorry you had surgery without adequate anesthesia.
