The most common method of removing fibroids is by making a four- to six-inch “bikini” incision on the abdomen just below the pubic hairline.
After inspecting the uterus to determine the number and position of the fibroids, the uterus is injected with vasopressin, a solution that limits bleeding during the surgery. Then the covering of the uterus overlying the fibroid is cut, and the fibroids are separated and removed from the normal uterine muscle. The defect is then closed with multiple layers of sutures.
