Depends on technique: Ask your doctor what technique was used, or get Op Report from your hospital. The most common method for tubal ligation via laparoscopy (belly button surgery) is cautery (ie, fulguration). This usually destroys more of the tube than either Falope rings or the Filshie Clip. If done at the time of Cesarean, usually not much is removed. Length of tube removed is impt if you are considering reversal.
