APPROACHES

  • Laparoscopy: this is the most recommended approach since it has the lowest rate of complications and the fastest recovery rate. It is performed through a small cut in the belly button (0.5 in) and 3 to 4 accessory cuts (0.2 in) at each side of the lowest part of the abdomen.
  • Abdominal: it is performed through a horizontal cut made in the lowest part of the abdomen, around 5 in, right above the pubic hairline. It’s usually the fastest approach, it requires dissolvable stitches or staples.
