What Is The Vasectomy Process?
Dr. Sussman’s vasectomy procedure is really quite simple, and will be completed in 20-25 minutes in most cases. The first step of the process will be to numb the skin of the scrotum through the use of a special instrument that replaces the use of a needle. A tiny opening, approximately a 1/4 of an inch, is then made. The vas will then be safely and effectively transected and cauterized. The tiny entry site will then be closed with a stitch that dissolves in 10 days.
There are a few requirements before coming into the office for your vasectomy procedure. Pain relievers, such as aspirin and NSAIDs (ie. Motrin, Naprosyn), should not be taken for 7 days before the procedure as this may increase the risk of bleeding. We also ask that you do not shave the scrotal area because this will be done in our office. Shaving at home increases the risk of skin infections which could result in the postponement of your procedure. Lastly, we ask that you curtail 3 activities after your procedure:
- No heavy lifting or exercise
- No sexual activity
- No going under water (ie. Bathing, swimming).
All of these restrictions should be followed for 4-5 days. Showers the following day are allowed.
