What to Expect with Vasectomy Reversal Surgery
A vasectomy reversal is performed under local anaesthetic combined with light general anaesthesia, which ensures a safe procedure. The procedure begins with a small incision made over the old vasectomy site. The two ends of the vas deferens are identified, freed from the surrounding scar tissue and then reconnected.
Chances for success depend on many factors including the method of vasectomy that was done and, most importantly, the length of time since the vasectomy was performed.
Vasectomy reversal usually 1 – 2 hours. You can expect to go home on the same day as a routine vasectomy reversal.
