Varicose veins are a common vein disease that affects thousands of people around the U.S. Seeking vein treatment for varicose veins can relieve symptoms and improve the appearance of unsightly varicose veins on your legs. When you have varicose veins, it means the valves in your veins have begun to malfunction, and blood is attempting to flow in reverse. This can cause your blood to pool, and the pressure in your veins increases. If you are suffering from varicose veins, you may be experiencing symptoms such as:
- Throbbing/aching legs
- Blood clots
- Skin damage
- Skin discoloration
- Heavy legs
Microphlebectomy, also known as ambulatory phlebectomy, is a minimally invasive vein treatment that is used to eliminate unsightly or even painful leg veins. This is typically the treatment option that is used for large surface varicose veins that can’t be removed with sclerotherapy due to their large size.
What The Procedure Looks Like
In this outpatient procedure, a special hook is used to remove the vein completely through small incisions made near the affected vein. Microphlebectomy is minimally invasive and causes minimum discomfort, typically not requiring anesthesia or stitches.
This eliminates the chance of the vein being able to come back and cause you further problems. These tiny incisions that are made do not require stitches because they are so small and do not typically leave scars. A compression bandage is applied, and you will be sent on your way. This procedure is sometimes combined with other treatment options so that it is highly effective. Contact New York Metro Vein today to schedule a consultation and find out if you are a candidate.
Preparing for Your Treatment
Before you go in for your vein treatment, you will meet with your vein specialist to ensure this is the right procedure for you. Once the decision has been made, your doctor will discuss with you the process of the treatment and what kind of results you should expect.
Your doctor will also discuss how you should prepare for your treatment in the days leading up. Typically, you will be asked to avoid applying lotions or oils before the procedure, and you may be asked to stop taking blood thinners. Talk to your doctor before your procedure to find out if the medications you are taking will interfere with the treatment.
Positive Benefits You Should Expect
Microphlebectomy will help keep varicose veins from coming back, giving you permanent results. Once the procedure is complete, you should feel a relief in your symptoms, and the veins will no longer be visible. Benefits of choosing this treatment include:
- Outpatient procedure
- Minimal scarring
- Quick recovery
- Immediate cosmetic results
- Often covered by insurance
- Comprehensive care for your needs.
