|Beanie had his removed as an adult. My vet was trying out laser surgery and needed a guinea pig, Beanie still had his and kept catching them so he was the GP. Truthfully, he was not in pain at all and except for a couple of stitches in each one, you could not even see the incision line. Stitches fell out in four days and he was completely healed. There is no scar and he never licked them at all. Of course, I have no idea what it would cost because his was free, but if you could, I would try to find someone who uses laser to do it!!!!!!!!!!
Some of my labs who had theirs removed as puppies(by other breeders since I do not remove them), still are left with pieces of the joint and those do rub and cause them irritation. Beanie's are clean and look like they were never there at all!
