Yes - i had it done. I was pretty worried about it going in... i just had local anaesthetic. The ophthalmic surgeon held the upper lid open and removed the chalazion...it didn't hurt, but I was very anxious! I can't stand having anyone even do my eye makeup, so you can imagine... All went well, followed up with drops if I recall correctly. All went well and it never came back! Don't worry & good luck.
I had three removed under local anaesthetic. I had two in the right and one on the left. I was given an antibiotic cream and had to wear an eyepatch for a few hours after the procedure. You might want to take someone with you to guide - I was a little disoriented after and it was dark when I left the eye hospital.
