In brief: Depends on amount

Really, this depends on the amount, type, duration and physiology of the patient.
In most people, effects wear off quite rapidly.

In brief: Depends on type

Almost all commonly used anesthetics are out of your body in a few hours.
Underlying heart, lung liver and kidney function can effect this. Occasionally meds will last up to 24 hours.
