During laparoscopic surgery, general anesthesia is administered to the patient. The surgeon will then fill your abdomen with carbon dioxide gas to move the abdominal wall away from the organs to increase visibility. Once the abdomen is inflated, the laparoscope is inserted through a small incision which is made near the belly button. Next, two to three additional key-hole-sized incisions are made on either side of the lower abdomen.
A lighted camera on the end of the laparoscope transmits a live video feed to a screen for the surgeon to perform the procedure. First, the doctor will examine the cyst and ovary more closely and then remove the cyst using surgical tools that pass through the incisions. During a cystectomy, the surgeon works carefully not to damage the ovary or fallopian tubes and preserve the patient’s fertility. Sometimes the cyst can also rupture during the surgery.
Once the cyst has been removed, the surgeon will close the incisions with stitches. Often women who have had a laparoscopic cystectomy can go home the same day of their surgery. Recovery time does vary according to your condition, but most women return to work and resume light activity within 1-2 weeks of the surgery.
