No Scalpel Vasectomy in Dallas Fort Worth
The no-scalpel vasectomy technique is preferred at Gentle Procedures because it is minimally invasive and reduces discomfort during the healing process. Traditional vasectomies typically require two incisions in the scrotum that require stitches to close. The no scalpel vasectomy uses a single small puncture that is easily closed by skin glue. No stitches means no itching and much less discomfort.
Dr. McAuliff uses a single tiny slit to access the vas deferens – the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the urethra where it is incorporated into the ejaculate. We do an open ended vasectomy, allowing sperm escape from the testicles and dissolve into the body.
Vasectomy causes no change in sexual desire, performance or testosterone levels. It is certainly less expensive and less complicated than a tubal ligation for a woman. Once the recovery period is complete and their is no new sperm in the system, there is no longer any need for birth control devices.
We do want to remind you that a vasectomy should be considered permanent. If you or your partner are uncertain about having children in the future, we suggest you wait until you are sure this is the right solution for you and your family.
Though a vasectomy can sometimes be reversed, it is not a guarantee. The longer it’s been since the original procedure the less likely a reversal is to be successful.
