Is the surgery painful?
A local anesthesia is administered prior to the procedure to ensure comfort and then mild sedation or general anesthesia is required. You should not feel any pain during the procedure. After surgery, any pain or discomfort you may experience will be controlled through pain medication and will usually not be needed after the first 3 to 4 days. Ice packs applied to the area for the first 24 hours helps with any pain and swelling.
