Your tubes are not tied per se, rather they are either burned, which less surgeons do as a slight risk of damage of burning the bowels accidentilly may occur. Or, they use a clip, mine is titanium, to clip shut the tubes, my understanding is that over time the tubes will fuse themselves. this is a short version of what I was told prior to my operation.
