SUch things are a learned fear, and fortunately, a couple of sessions with a good child psychologist can help her to unlearn the fear. Its worth treating, as such fears tend to generalise --- that is, they start to arise in a wider range of setting --- first the actual needle, then the lady who takes the blood, then even visiting the doctor.
I didn't quite understand some of your comments --- is she already receiving some form of therapy for some other trauma ? That ought not to have taken long, and if this is from a competent psychologist, this could and should easily be switched to focus on helping her control this new fear, and manage the operation without too much concern. Generally, long-term complex therapy for "trauma" in a child of 4 would be highly unusual
