It is different from open surgery where the incision on skin can be several inches long. A small incision is made in the umbilicus / navel and through that incision a tiny camera is inserted.The laparoscope is then used to visualize your pelvic area and internal organs. The surgeon is able to watch the image from this camera on a TV monitor while performing the surgical procedure. Two to three( depending upon the type of surgery) other tiny incisions are made in the lower abdomen, through these tiny incisions, specialized laparoscopy instruments are inserted and used for the removal process .
