General: The procedure requires some tugging and gas inflation. A spinal can also work but favor general with airway control and dealing with full tummy. Couple of hours should suffice.

Laparoscopy : Requires general anethesia. The anesthetic time for this procedure should only be a little longer than the surgical time. Your ob/gyn should be able to give you a good time estimate.
