When I was a child I was attacked by a pit bull. Unfortunately the attack left me with a large scar on my left cheek. I’d like to have the scar removed if possible. Is this a painful procedure?
There is a small amount of discomfort involved in injecting a numbing agent, lidocaine, into the skin. Otherwise there is very little pain involved in the recovery and people tolerate the procedure very well.
