In brief: Not necessarily

Removal of the uterus and ovaries can be accomplished in several ways.
Sometimes no scar is left. Often a vaginal hysterectomy is possible, which leaves no scar. If that approach is not appropriate, a laparoscopic or robotic procedure will leave only small scars. You should seek out a doctor who is capable of performing such surgeries to allow you the full range of options.
