In brief: LAVH usually better
Depends on what the reason is, what your body type is and why they are doing it and how good your doctor is at doing lavh.
But usually there is less pain and an easier recovery time after lavh. But doing it robotically often has less pain that lavh.

Most studies show quicker, easier recovery from lavh compared to tah, with return to full activity sooner after an lavh.
Most studies show fewer complications with lavh compared to tah.

In brief: Big difference.
There are many circumstances that can determine the best procedure for a particular patient.
Most patients are candidates for minimally invasive surgery. Lavh, tlh or Vaginal hysterectomy have recovery times that are significantly faster than an abdominal. Single incision tlh is Ali possible. Your recovery will be much easier with a minimally invasive approach. Hope this helps.
