Liver transplant being complex process is done at high risk. To reduce chances or risk from the patient side they are given anaesthesia which makes them unconscious. Generally, everyone is unconscious during the liver transplant. Only in rare cases, patients are kept conscious due to some other medical issues. But then also patiently is not able to see their body being operated. Because there are drapes used over everything and there is a curtain between the patients head and the surgical area. Thus patients are not able to see liver transplant or any surgery performed on their body.
