Although there are still some instances where large varicose veins need to be removed surgically, this procedure has advanced from the extensive stripping techniques of the past into more minimally-invasive techniques such as microphlebectomy. At Fox Vein Experts, our microphlebectomy procedures create maximum results with minimal to no downtime.
What is Microphlebectomy?
At Fox Vein Experts, we offer a wide range of minimally-invasive procedures to alleviate your vascular symptoms and help create skin that is free of visible or protruding veins. Microphlebectomy is a procedure that removes medium or large varicose veins through the legs via tiny incisions are nearly invisible and typically do not require sutures.
During a microphlebectomy procedure, bulging or twisted varicose veins are gently teased out of an incision that is typically ¼ of an inch in length and removed from underneath the skin using special surgical tools. The blood is redirected through healthy veins, improving overall blood circulation.
What are the Benefits of Microphlebectomy?
This procedure is safe, quick, and offers multiple benefits to patients, including:
- Improved vascular health
- Immediate results
- An easy return to normal activities after treatment
- No visible scarring
- Improved cosmetic appearance in the legs
- Alleviating symptoms of venous insufficiency, including heaviness, aches and cramping in the legs as well as swelling
Am I a Good Candidate for Microphlebectomy?
During your consultation with our medical team, factors such as your health, medical history, treatment preferences and expectations will be assessed in order to determine if this procedure is the best course of treatment for your medium or large varicose veins. For patients who may benefit from other treatment options, we offer a wide range of vein removal options.
Is There Any Recovery Time?
Very minor bruising and soreness may develop after treatment, but these typically subside after a day or so. Most patients return to work and normal activities after this procedure, and compression hose and a daily walking regimen may be recommended in order to maintain good circulation in the legs.
Dr. Susan Fox and our medical team have extensive experience in this procedure, ensuring results that you can trust.
