Phlebectomy

A particularly thickened and prominent varicose vein can be removed surgically through the process of a phlebectomy. A skin prick no bigger than an injection puncture is made, and, with the use of ultra-fine instruments, the vein is lifted through the skin and tied off.

 

The benefits of a phlebectomy:

• Minimal bruising

• Very little if any post-op pain or discomfort
