NO: If truly recurrent dysplasia and no fertility desired, then this is completely a very good option and will give the best result as far as future prognosis. Consider whether removal of the ovaries too may be in your best interest at 46 yo. Discuss with your GYN. Consider a laparoscopic surgery as this allows return to normal faster - but only by really qualified surgeons - not every GYN knows well.
