Microphlebectomy – Remove Large Varicose Veins
When varicose veins are too large to treat with sclerotherapy, we may recommend microphlebectomy. This minimally invasive, in-office procedure takes about an hour and requires little or no down time.
We start by numbing the skin area on top of the veins. Using a small hook, we locate the problem veins and bloodlessly pull it through the skin to remove it. We repeat this process for all problem veins. You may feel a slight pulling sensation during the procedure, but shouldn’t experience any pain. Small punctures heal rapidly with an excellent cosmetic result.
What Are The Results?
A microphlebectomy leaves virtually no scars.
