Pain with touch up Liposuction
Because pain is such an individual thing, it is hard to say. But it seems that once the local anesthetic is injected, there really is little pain.
Liposuction touch up
The only pain we see in our clinic, is during the numbing when the anesthestia is placed. In our office, Dr. Atkins who does our liposuction in this area, typically will give some oral medications as well prior to the procedure to diminish the discomfort.
Pain is a very individual matter, I think the local procedure is best. The discomfort come mostly at the begining when the local is injected

Touchup Liposuction Under Local Anesthesia
Whether you have liposuction done under local anesthesia depends on the size of the areas that need to be treated and your tolerance to some injections. For touchups in limited areas, local or IV sedation may be just fine and good numbing of the treated areas can be obtained.
Smartlipo is performed under a local anesthesia, there is little discomfort or pain involved. You may feel a minor stinging sensation which is very minimal.
