My DD had tongue tie and had to get it snipped (we had it done by a lactation consultant). She cried for about 10 seconds and they encourage them to feed right after to help.

After that, it didn't seem to bother her. You have to continue to "stretch" the webbing between the tongue and mouth for about a week while it heals so it doesn't heal together (and re-tie). That was unpleasant for both of us, but it's just a few times a day (and it didn't hurt her..but she didn't like me sticking my fingers in her mouth!).
