In brief: Always some
The manner in which fibroids are removed depends on location.
Those in the cavity can usually be removed with a hysteroscope ( camera which passes through the vagina and cervix. ) most others can be removed via a laprascope. The use of the robot can really aid in closure of the incisions in the uterus. Most fibroids do not require a major incision in the abdomen, which limits blood loss.

In brief: UFE
If blood loss is a major concern then strong consideration should be given to the uterine fibroid embolization procedure.
There is almost no blood loss during the procedure.
