2. Open Myomectomy

During an open myomectomy, the doctor makes an incision across the abdomen. In many cases, the cut is similar to a Cesarean-section cut near the bikini line. The doctor typically opens the uterus to cut away the fibrous tumors or myomas. Open myomectomies are considered major surgeries and have a healing time of four to six weeks.
