How painful is a vasectomy procedure? Is it performed under general or local anesthesia? What degree of pain is it expected after the procedure and for what period of time?
Traditional or No-Scalpel vasectomy is painless as it performed under local anesthesia. The only thing that may cause a little discomfort is the actual anesthetic needle sting. But even this procedure has improved. If needles represent an inconvenience for you, the specialists at Renew Skin & Health Clinic offer you a simpler and entirely painless alternative, the No-needle anesthesia method using a “jet injection” device that actually pushes an anesthetic solution through the skin. The only effect felt on the skin is similar to a small rubber band released on the skin. However, this method is not as safe as the injection itself, as it is used more than once. Regarding the actual vasectomy procedure however, there is no pain felt during the procedure, the doctor can even give you a mild sedative such as Valium to help you relax, the only discomfort occurring post-surgery, when the area is sore and sensitive. This discomfort will disappear after short while, you can return to work after 2-3 days, resume your sex life after one week and do heavy lifting and physical effort after a minimum of two weeks.
The Renew Skin & Health Clinic surgeon or specialist in charge of your case will give you all the necessary information to minimize any risks and complications and achieve a quick, effective recovery.
