How is a Phlebectomy performed?

Frequently asked questions

Before the procedure, the area around the varicose vein is numbed with local anaesthetic. Most patients feel little to no discomfort and tolerate it very well. There are also no scars left. It’s just a minor, stress-free intervention that will restore the confidence in the appearance of your legs.
After this minor surgical treatment there can be some heaviness and aching in the leg. This usually settles after a few days. Nothing to worry about. For discomfort, Paracetamol or Nurofen will do the trick.
Phlebectomies are very effective and provide a better cosmetic effect. Often after ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy and even Endovenous laser ablations, there can be a large amount of trapped blood that gives rise to pigmentation. A phlebectomy reduces this, therefore, guaranteeing a great result. You’ll only wish you had this treatment sooner.

You will need to wear compression stockings after the treatment. We recommend avoiding strenuous workouts in the first two weeks.

The main advantage of an Ambulatory (or “walk-in, walk-out”) Phlebectomy is the use of the “keyhole” surgical technique using advanced ultrasound guidance. Patients experience less to no scarring and little to no pain or discomfort. The risk of complications is very low and a higher success rate than conventional methods is guaranteed.

Possible side effects

Minor bruises could appear along the areas treated. They slowly fade over 2-4 weeks.
This gets better over the first few days. It does not hold you back from moving around freely. Take Paracetamol or Nurofen if needed.
This often happens in the 1st week after treatment due to trapped blood. They are often tender to touch but slowly decrease in size on their own or when removed with a needle.
This is a result of dead blood in the vein coming to the surface of the skin. It looks like a brownish patch, located where the vein used to be. It fades with time and does not persist past 12 months. Removal of trapped blood reduces it, but cannot prevent it.

Twisted, swollen veins are often caused by either of the following factors:

  • family history
  • not enough physical exercise
  • smoking or being overweight
  • pregnancy
  • standing or sitting or for long periods of time.
