    No scars?

    Quick question regarding both hysterectomies and tubal ligations. Are there any procedures known to anybody that can successfully perform either of these procedures without any visible scars? I haven't been able to find any, but a friend of mine swears there is one for both. I know hysterectomies through the belly button are close, but there are still a few small incisions with that procedure.

    Any help would be fantastic!

    There are minimally invasive techniques with tiny incisions. But the hormonal and anatomical changes can be worse than any scar.

    There is also a procedure where the procedure is done entirely through the vagina. My cousin had that done.
