    If a patient is having an elective surgical procedure on a day that has been carefully chosen, with all required procedures occurring on the same day, they may be given an ambulatory anaesthetic. Ambulatory anesthesia is a hot new area in the field of anesthesia, and this is not hyperbole. Methods: The study design was a prospective randomised trial. After receiving approval from an ethics committee and the hospital administration, the researchers in this study conducted their work in the ENT operating room at Department of Anaesthesia, Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences, Adilabad, Telangana, India from June 2021 to May 2022. Results: 50 patients were divided into two groups of 25 at random for the study. Propofol was used as the anesthetic for the first group (n = 25). Group 2 (n=25) underwent sevoflurane anesthesia. Compared to Propofol, sevoflurane induction during adult tonsillectomies is more challenging and requires a longer recovery period. Both groups experience apnea at about the same rates. Conclusion: Phase I and Phase II recovery times were comparable for the two groups. There was a statistically insignificant correlation between the incidence of postoperative pain and sevoflurane anesthesia. When it comes to inducing and maintaining anesthesia during outpatient procedures on adults, propofol is superior to other sedatives and anesthetics. It takes less time to induce and has lower postoperative pain, nausea, and vomiting rates
