Vaginal laparoscopic hysterectomies are commonly performed by the board certified plastic surgeon at the Labiaplasty Center of NYC, located in Manhattan, New York. A hysterectomy is a procedure that aims to get rid of the patient’s uterus (womb). Your cervix could be completely removed (total hysterectomy) or left in place (subtotal hysterectomy). Depending on your age and the reason for the hysterectomy, your ovaries may also be removed or left in the body at the time of the procedure. A hysterectomy may be performed laparoscopically, through the abdominal wall or vagina, which can help limit post-operative pain, create smaller scars, and enable quicker recovery times.
A laparoscopic hysterectomy with the best in class NYC based board certified plastic surgeon at the Labiaplasty Center of NYC (Manhattan, New York) consists of creating a series of minor incisions (typically four) in the stomach near the belly button, rather than a single, large incision in the abdomen. Women may opt to undergo the removal of one or more of their reproductive parts due to a medical condition such as adenomyosis, endometriosis, fibroids, heavy periods / pelvic pain, uterine prolapse, cancer of the cervix / ovaries / womb, or pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). A partial hysterectomy with the board certified New York based plastic surgeon consists of extracting only the upper part of the uterus, leaving the cervix in-place.
Please Note: Our board certified plastic surgeon offers virtual and in-person consultations at our Manhattan, New York based practice.

During your initial laparoscopic hysterectomy consultation, the best in class New York plastic surgeon at the Labiaplasty Center of NYC, you will discuss your post-surgical goals and learn more about the benefits of a laparoscopic hysterectomy, rather than a traditional hysterectomy. The procedure is performed at the Labiaplasty Center of NYC’s state-of-the-art, fully accredited boutique surgical suite located in the heart of Manhattan, New York and takes about 90 minutes to complete.
During the procedure, the NYC plastic surgeon makes four incisions in the target area. In order to elevate the abdominal wall and provide the surgeon a clean view of the inside of the abdominal wall, carbon dioxide gas is injected into your belly. Your abdomen is inserted with a device (called a trocar) and a laparoscope—a lit, telescopic camera—is inserted through the trocar, which allows the surgeon to plainly see the target area on the screen. Areas of the reproductive system such as the cervix and womb are carefully removed in pieces through the initial incision site. Women can expect to return to normal activity within 2-3 weeks of undergoing the procedure.
