No, laser liposuction is usually done while you are awake. Only old school physicians or procedures requiring special circumstances would be put under general.

No, you do not need to be put out. You can look for a surgeon that does true tumescent liposuction. What this means is that the procedure is done totally under local anesthesia. This was developed by Dr. Jeffrey Klein a dermatologist in southern California. You will see
many surgeons say they do tumescent liposuction but in reality they are still putting you out. I only give my patients a little oral lorazepam to help relax them but they can talk to me throughout the procedure. Many of them bring an MP3 player and listen to music while the procedure is performed.
