1 doctor agrees

In brief: Depends

It may depend on the age and how severe the ingrown nail is.
Often if not real bad the edge of the nail can be clipped away. If bad then a small surgical procedure can be performed under local anesthesia

I agree. The surgical procedure is designed to prevent the ingrown nail from growing back.
