Hey guys, I was talking to my mum and my aunt has to get an op, while i awake and it got me thinking, i'd be pooping myself getting an op, nevermind getting one while awake. Anyway, they seem to tear/cut the skin with scalpels and whenever i have seen them on TV, they look like they don't even push the blade againstthe skin at all. How sharp are they and do they hurt, aspecially while being awake. I know this is a bit random, but i would love an answer. Best of luck to my aunt too, who his having a few things replaced.
