In brief: Local anesthetic

There is localized pain at the the donor site and recepient site.
There will be discomfort for 1-2 days after the anesthetic will wear off.

In brief: Recovery

While the operation itself is done under anesthesia, the area where the skin is harvested from ("donor site") can be sore during the recovery phase.
