What to Expect from Your Consultation with a Vasectomy Reversal Surgeon


If you are considering a vasectomy reversal, one of the first steps is to have a consultation with a surgeon. A vasectomy reversal surgeon can help you decide if you are a good candidate for the procedure and what to expect from the process. If you have a consultation scheduled with a vasectomy reversal surgeon, here is a look at what may happen during your appointment.

Review of Your Medical History

Your vasectomy surgeon will review your medical history to ensure that surgery is safe for you and that it is has a reasonable likelihood of being successful in your case. Although success rates for vasectomy reversals are high, many different factors influence the chances of success in individual cases. Your surgeon will review your medical history to form a more accurate predication of what to expect in your case.

Discussion of Your Treatment Goals

It is helpful for your surgeon to understand why you are choosing to undergo vasectomy reversal surgery. For instance, if you and your partner are undergoing IVF, your vasectomy surgeon can work with the IVF clinic to provide sperm using the MESA process. By knowing the goals you’re trying to achieve, your surgeon can tailor your procedure to your needs.

Explanation of the Procedure and Recovery

Your vasectomy surgeon will spend part of your consultation explaining how the reversal is performed and what you can expect during the recovery period. Generally, the vasectomy reversal process takes about two to three hours in an outpatient surgery center. Most patients can return home about an hour after surgery. Post-procedure discomfort lasts for a few days, which can be managed with ice packs and pain medications. The day after the procedure, patients return to their surgeons to have the drains removed.
