Immediately prior to surgery you will be explained the procedure and any questions answered. You will be asked to fill some paperwork. You will be given tranquilizer to calm you from any element of anxiety. In addition, a dose of antibiotics will also be given. All this may take about 30-45 minutes.
You will be then taken to the the operating room. The scrotum will be shaved (if not already done), prepped and draped in sterile fashion. Local anesthesia is administered. It feels like a mosquito-bite. The surgery thereafter is painless.
It takes about 3 to 3 1/2 hour to complete the procedure. No drains are placed. During surgery you may be able to read a book, listen to music, watch a DVD (please bring your favorite DVD) or take a nap. After surgery, a dressing is applied and you will be discharged from the facility about 30 minutes after surgery.
