Micro Phlebectomy Treatment for Varicose Veins
Micro phlebectomy, also known as ambulatory phlebectomy, is a minimally invasive procedure that removes damaged veins from the surface of the legs through microscopic incisions. This procedure is used to treat varicose veins that are much larger than those treated with sclerotherapy.
Causes of Varicose Veins
Varicose veins are a venous condition that affects nearly 20% of all adults that may appear as bulging, purplish and bluish in color and very painful for many individuals. Arteries carry blood from your heart to the rest of your body tissues.

Why Do You Need for Micro Phlebectomy for Varicose Veins?
This procedure is done to treat varicose veins instead of endovenous laser treatment, simply because the veins are much smaller than those possessed by a normal EVLT patient. In fact, vein micro plebectomy is commonly used on patients following EVLT in order to remove any remaining saphenous veins or perforating veins.
Patients turn to our patient centers for micro phlebectomies to not only remove painful varicose veins but to restore the natural beauty of their skin. Microphlebectomies stop the flow of blood into damaged veins and allow the blood to flow into healthy veins nearby. Following treatment, patients obtain feel relief from painful symptoms and unattractive appearance brought on by varicose veins.
Recovery Process after a Micro plebectomy
It is typically performed as a stand-alone procedure, meaning that patients will not be required to undergo multiple surgeries as they may have had to with traditional surgical procedures.
All side effects are typically mild and short-lived. Once this procedure is completed, the majority of patients can resume daily activities immediately and will not be required to wear stitches or sutures. However, we recommend that patients refrain from intense physical activities for about a week.
During this brief recuperating period, compression stockings are recommended in order accelerate the healing process. In addition, the very small incisions will not require heavy bandages and almost all patients never experience scarring.
