Yes you are put under. I would not say it hurts but there is burning. I was put under only through the application and then would awake until the next section was done. I was on medication that created a cough so they were not comfortable with leaving me under the through the whole procedure. That evening I took one pain pill at bed time and did not not another. There is swelling for the first day however the following day it disappeared. I am so glad I had it done no one can believe I am 65.
Stephanie I am pleased to answer any questions you may have about my procedure. I would do it all over again and I still have people tell me they don't believe I am my age and I look amazing.. I am happy to share all I can. Look forward to hearing your questions.
