What is Phlebectomy?

A Phlebectomy (pronounced flee-bek-tomy) is a minor surgical procedure whereby superficial varicose veins on the surface of the leg are removed through small incisions. The word “Phlebectomy” comes from the Greek word “phleb” meaning “vein” and the medical term “ectomy” that stands for “to take out” or “to remove”.

Besides being unappealing, varicose veins might cause aching pain, feelings of fatigue in the legs, redness, rashes, or sores on the skin. Phlebectomy is one of the most efficient ways to remove them. Its main advantages include little to no scarring and extremely fast recovery. The entire procedure is done under local anaesthetic. Patients can instantly return to their daily activities.

How is a Phlebectomy performed?

We start with a duplex ultrasound to confirm and mark the location of the superficial veins on the leg. Next, our doctor injects local anaesthetic around the targeted veins, under ground-breaking ultrasound guidance. Little slit-like incisions are then made, 1 mm in size. From these entry points, we delicately pull the bulging veins with a special instrument.

The veins are easily removed and discarded. Once completed, we apply tiny, sticky steri-strips. No sutures are required. We place comfortable medical stockings on the treated leg and we advise walking straight after. In no time, you will get back to your regular activities, but with greater-looking legs.
