Meet Dr Simon
Dr Simon is a has been offering the Li No-Scalpel Vasectomy technique since 2006. As a GP with a special interest in sexual health medicine he wanted to be able to offer patients a hassle-free contraception method. Scalpel-free vasectomy is a more precise and delicate option than incision vasectomy, and offers typically faster recovery times.
THE VASECTOMY PROCEDURE
Vasectomy at Direct Access Vasectomy in Melbourne takes approximately 20-30 minutes. Here's the typical steps in the no-scalpel vasectomy procedure:
A local anaesthetic is injected into the area using a fine needle. A tiny hole is made in the scrotum.
The vas deferens is divided and the testicular end of the tube is left open to help prevent congestion in the testis. A tiny layer of tissue is placed between the two ends of the vas to stop them re-joining.
The same procedure is performed on the other side but through the same hole. The skin edge is clipped together without stitches and a dressing is applied to keep the area clean and dry.
You will rest for 24 hours and can return to sex and physical activities within a few days. You will need to use back-up contraception until your follow-up test 3 months after your vasectomy procedure.
