Laparoscopy: Laparoscopy is a more complicated way of doing surgery that lets the patient recover faster. It is very safe when your doctor is well-trained and experienced. There are many ways to manage hormonal imbalance and cysts but treatment usually starts with medication, not surgery. If surgery is being done for ovarian cyst the ovary may get damaged but seldomly would it affect future pregnancy.
