Does anyone know how to effectivly remove surgical staples?

Tha hospital gave me staples insted of stiches this time, i've always removed my own stitches, but when it comes time, i want to take these staples out......any help? what will i need? tools? like pliers or something? pain isnt a problem here by tha way.
Update: ok.......none of you are helping me at all....i DO NOT want to go back, they WILL charge me more money (money i already do not have).....read my question, cuz really if they can do it, so can i....its not some sort of highly skilled art-form im sure.
