In brief: Anastomosis

Micro tubal anastomosis is very successful when performed by well trained reproductive endocrinologists.
The success rates depend upon where the ligation is on the tubes and what length of tube is left after the anastomosis procedure.

In brief: Surgery or IVF ...

Your choices are a surgical tubal reversal or in vitro fertilization.
Surgery may have high tubal patency rates (at least one tube stays open 70% of the time) but a higher chance of ectopic (tubal) pregnancy. Ivf may get you pregnant faster. Decision is affected by your age, your partner's sperm (get a semen analysis for him, whether a new partner or father of your child/ren). See md who does both.

In brief: IVF vs. BTA

Unless your tubal ligation ('tying') was unsuccesful/failed you cannot get pregnant without help.
You may still have an excellent chance of pregnancy with ivf, and/or you might be a good candidate for tubal anastomosis ('tubal reversal.') a reproductive endocrinologist can help you learn more about these options.
