Hi, and welcome to Connect. I am not sure what they look like either or how it would work for your daughter. I can tell you that there is a discussion you might want to read where many people discuss the ins and outs of pain pumps. Perhaps one of those folks can answer your question. Here is the link:

Also, did you do a search? I just now did a Google Images search on pain pumps that shows a lot of pictures of what they look like when implanted, here:

Good luck on finding answers. Best, Hank

My husband had one implanted at Mayo. He was quite thin at the time, so it was hard to hide it. But it was about the size of a small hockey puck and you could easily see it under his abdominal skin. The implant team will place it in the best location for each individual. I do have a photo if you are still looking for one.
