This page shows the location of surgery and post vasectomy recovery, including the incision and some light bruising. All of the photos were taken during the first weekbetween days one and six, but we unfortunately don’t know when each photo was taken.
This photo shows the location of the right incision. Many surgeons prefer to do the incisions as high as possible because this leaves the longest distal vas remnant. This tends to lessen the risk of back pressure causing pain during the time the body is adapting to it’s sterile state.
We don’t normally show the penis in photos but in this case it helps to show the exact location of the incision, and demonstrates how high up it is. If the penis is held out of the way for the photos this tends to pull on the scrotum, and it’s not always easy to see where the incision was made.
