No Scalpel Vasectomy in Dallas Fort Worth

The no-scalpel vasectomy procedure is minimally invasive and greatly reduces discomfort during the short healing process. Traditionally, vasectomies require two incisions with a scalpel in the scrotum, requiring stitches to close. All that’s left from the no-scalpel vasectomy is a small puncture that is easily sealed with skin glue. No stitches required which means no itching and a comfortable, quick recovery.

Dr. McAuliff creates a single, small slit to gain access to the vas deferens – these are the two tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the urethra where it is mixed with semen. Because we employ the open-ended vasectomy technique, sperm is allowed to escape from the testicles and dissolve into the body naturally

Before Vasectomy Animation

To understand what happens during a No-Scalpel Vasectomy procedure, review this diagram to see how the male anatomy normally functions. The testicles produce sperm that travel through a pair of tubes called the Vasa Deferens. You can easily feel them through the scrotal skin, like firm spaghetti-sized tubes on either side of the penis. These tubes carry sperm from the testicles to the penis.

After Vasectomy Animation

The vasectomy procedure simply interrupts the flow of sperm by cutting the sperm tubes and blocking their ends. Before making the decision to have your NSV, please review the preparations, procedure, and recovery to see what you can expect from Dr. McAuliff and your NSV from start to finish. Vasectomy is the most reliable form of birth control.

Vasectomy does not cause any change in libido, performance, or testosterone levels. Tubal ligation for women is much more expensive and complicated than a man getting a vasectomy. After the recovery period is complete, there is no more sperm in the systems so you will have no need for additional birth control devices or methods.

Permanent Procedure

Please remember that a vasectomy procedure should be considered permanent. If you or your partner are considering having children in the future, please wait until you are certain that a vasectomy is the right path for you and your family.

Vasectomy procedures can sometimes be reversed, however, there is no guarantee. The longer the duration from the procedure to the time of attempted reversal is a big factor in how successful the reversal is.
