Yes: Though the recovery may be much quicker, it is still a major surgery where you are put under general anesthesia and there are risks of major complications.

Yes: Any hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) is considered a major surgery. With that said, there are several different modalities by which a uterus is removed. A lash is a type of laparoscopic hysterectomy in which the uterine body is removed but the cervix is left in the body. It is a simpler surgery with less time spent in the or. Recovery time is typically shorter as well.
