Of course, having liposuction while awake means that some anesthesia does have to be given. With local anesthesiaDr. Kutty at Luxe Plastic Surgery is able to anesthetize patients without completely putting them to sleep by applying it to only a specific area of the body. He carefully calculates the amount of anesthetic that can be given to minimize risk and works slowly and gently enough to avoid causing pain for patients, which leads to significantly less postoperative pain and bruising.

Dr. Kutty believes that, when appropriate, avoiding general anesthesia can provide several benefits, including:

  • General anesthesia leaves people feeling ill, often for days
  • Having surgery under general anesthesia can cost over twice as much as it would with local anesthesia
  • Local anesthesia minimizes the number of systemic drugs that must be administered
  • Local anesthesia can be given safely in the right situation and with careful attention to dosing
  • You’re back to your normal routine within one to two days

Additionally, with local anesthesia, most patients are able to return to non-strenuous work after a few days. Depending on the number of areas treated and the volume of fat removed, most people can expect to return to strenuous activities within 4-6 weeks. A full recovery from swelling typically takes up to six months or more.


At Luxe Plastic Surgery, we provide a relaxing, non-intimidating environment that will reduce your anxieties about liposuction. Dr. Kutty evaluates the patient’s aesthetic concern and decides whether the desired result can be obtained without requiring general anesthesia. Dr. Kutty will only advise having wide-awake liposuction if it can be done absolutely safely and if he is confident he can obtain the same result as with general anesthesia.

Consider the advantages of having liposuction with local anesthesia:

  • Predictable results
  • Safer, by avoiding all the medications needed for general anesthesia
  • Much simpler process; no hassle of being in a hospital
  • No downtime
  • Minimal pain afterward
