Typical vasectomy recovery pictures from surgery to day 8

Are you getting a vasectomy?
Plan ahead and get some cold packs on Amazon and a 3 pack of jock straps for a comfortable post-surgery recovery!

These pictures show the first week of a typical vasectomy recovery, all the way from pre-shave to day eight. This patient experienced minimal bruising and swelling.

This set of images also offers a good example of a very minimal midline incision which healed very well.

Our contributor says: “As you can see I had an uneventful vasectomy experience, very little swelling and almost no bruising. I did not take any pain medications before, or after the vasectomy but I did find comfort wearing an athletic supporter for six days after the vasectomy.”
