What happens during vasectomy reversal surgery

  • Vasectomy reversal is performed under general anaesthetic
  • It usually takes between an 1 hour - 1.5 hours
  • During a vasectomy, the vas deferen tubes are cut preventing sperm from leaving the epididymis
  • To reverse this procedure your surgeon in Brentwood will locate the site of your vasectomy
  • They will usually make cuts on each side of your scrotum
  • After examining each testicle they will free up the tubes and remove any scar tissue
  • Using a special microscope they will stitch the ends of the tubes back together
  • They will close the surgical wounds with stitches.

After vasectomy reversal surgery in Brentwood

  • You should be able to go home the day of your procedure but you should arrange for someone to drive you
  • Take over the counter pain relievers such as Paracetamol if you have any discomfort, as advised by the clinical team
  • You should avoid any strenuous activity or heavy lifting for at least 3 weeks after your surgery
  • Gentle walking may speed your recovery
  • Please discuss any return to work with your consultant
  • About 6 - 8 weeks after your surgery you will need to return to our clinic to give a semen sample
  • We will examine the sample for sperm
  • If no sperm are present or your sperm count is very low we may ask you to return for another test at a later date.

General complications could include:

  • Pain
  • Infection in the surgical wound
  • Bleeding.

Specific complications of a vasectomy reversal could include:

  • Long term pain
  • Bleeding within the scrotum
  • Damage to blood vessel
  • Scar tissue causing the tubes to block
