In brief: Not usually painful

Nasal polyp surgery today is either performed with an endoscope or a microscope.
Depending on the surgeon's experience and training, almost all the nasal and sinus inflammation can be removed. However, you should know that this is a genetic disease and recurrences are common. The nose is frequently packed for a few days. Pain is moderate but pressure in the face may be significant.

In brief: Straightforward

No surgery is easy, but it is safe, common, and not usually very painful to have polyps removed from the sinuses and nose.
See an ENT doctor for evaluation.
