Does an ingrown nail surgery hurt?

I have been told the actual removal of the nail does not hurt because you are under anesthesia. But my worry is will the niddle hurt and wat is done step by step.

    I haven't had ingrown toenail surgery but I had an ingrown toenail removed and it was the numbing shots that hurt like heck definitlely the worst pain in my life but the actual removal of the nail didn't hurt at all I couldn't feel a thing. My foot just felt like a balloon and they were moving it around but no pain at all. Even afterwards. I hope I at least kind of helped. Basically if your getting numbing shots expect them to hurt like crazy but I'm not sure about anesthesia.
