If you have immediate concerns after surgery you should be able to contact your surgeon or covering provider immediately. Don't rely on internet advice without an examination. Nausea can be a reaction from pain medication, the pain itself, or a reactionto the local anesthetic if it is interacting with your daily medication or if you were given too many milligrams of lidocaine for your age or weight. Call your surgeon now!

Vomiting after liposuction may be a serious complication

Vomiting after liposuction is rare and may be due to anesthetics or the stress of surgery. It can also be due to penetration of the cannula through the abdominal muscles during the procedure. In any case a patient should call his doctor.
