No-Incision Vasectomy Surgery

We are proud to offer no-incision vasectomy surgery at GBR Plastic Surgery in Virginia Beach- without the wait! In Hampton Roads, the waiting list for vasectomy performed by our competitors can be as long as nine months – and we know a lot can happen in that amount of time. When you and your partner have decided vasectomy is the best option for you and your family, you don’t want to wait. Urologist Dr. Erik Grossgold performs no-incision, also called no-scalpel, vasectomy surgery at Galardi Bowen Plastic Surgery in Virginia Beach.

What is a no-incision vasectomy?

A no-incision, or no-scalpel, vasectomy is a less invasive form of vasectomy surgery. Instead of making an incision into the patient’s scrotum to cut the vas deferens – the tubes that carry sperm from your testicles to your urethra – Dr. Grossgold makes a small puncture in the skin. This less invasive option means less swelling, no stitches, and faster recovery time. 

What can I expect from my no-incision vasectomy?

A no-incision vasectomy is a very quick, outpatient procedure that usually lasts about 15 – 30 minutes. This process is typically quick, taking about 15-30 minutes. After the vasectomy, patients may experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the scrotal area, but these side effects are usually mild and temporary. It’s essential to follow post-operative instructions, such as using pain relievers and providing adequate rest, to facilitate a smooth recovery.

Patients are advised to use an alternative form of contraception until a follow-up semen analysis confirms the absence of sperm, usually after a certain number of ejaculations or a few months, depending on Dr. Grossgold’s recommendation.

What are the benefits of a vasectomy?

Vasectomy surgery is almost 100% effective, making it an excellent choice for permanent birth control, especially when compared to other popular birth control options: 

  • Vasectomy surgery is significantly less invasive and less expensive than tubal ligation surgery for women – and hasn’t your partner already been through enough? 
  • Vasectomy surgery does not impact your hormone levels and it won’t affect your sex drive. If you are experiencing low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, or other symptoms associated with low testosterone, Dr. Grossgold also offers hormone replacement therapy to tackle these common issues.
  • Vasectomy surgery is a lot less expensive than having a child – which tops $240,000 before college expenses!
