What are ovaries attached to after hysterectomy?

  • The fallopian tubes connect the ovaries to the uterus and abdomen (suspensory ligament for connecting the abdomen).
  • But after uterus removal (hysterectomy procedure), your surgeons reattach your ovaries to the fallopian tubes itself.
  • Post hysterectomy, your small and large intestines, will move to occupy most of the space that your uterus once occupied.


Hope this answers your question!


Since hysterectomy tends to leave your abdomen hanging, thus you can combine this procedure with a tummy tuck as well!

For more information, you can call our helpdesk, or connect with surgeons listed in India and Turkey specific pages.
