Look good. Feel good.

Are you tired of unsightly varicose veins that make you feel self-conscious? Phlebectomy might be just what you need to restore your confidence! This minimally invasive varicose vein removal procedure leaves little to no scarring. With little downtime required, you can get back to your daily routine feeling and looking great.

What is phlebectomy?

Phlebectomy is a minimally invasive operation using a small scalpel or needle to remove unwanted varicose veins. Under local anesthesia, the unwanted vein is removed permanently, and no stitches are required afterward. The procedure is usually performed on the legs, but it can also remove varicose veins in other parts of the body. One of the advantages of phlebectomy is that it doesn't require a large incision or general anesthesia. This makes the recovery time shorter and less painful than traditional vein-stripping surgery.

Are painful, unsightly veins getting you down?

Phlebectomy is typically recommended for individuals who have varicose veins that are causing discomfort or affecting their quality of life. During your free consultation with Dr. Gharai, she will determine if phlebectomy is the ideal treatment for you. She may sometimes recommend other treatments, such as sclerotherapy or laser vein removal. Dr. Gharai can help you understand the benefits and risks of each option and suggest a course of action personalized to your unique needs and goals.

Enjoy these benefits of phlebectomy.

Improved appearance

Phlebectomy can help reduce the appearance of varicose veins, leading to smoother, more attractive legs.

Minimal scarring

Phlebectomy involves making small incisions in the skin, which typically results in minimal scarring compared to other surgical procedures.

Reduced pain and discomfort

Varicose veins can cause pain, swelling, and discomfort. Phlebectomy can help alleviate these symptoms and improve your overall quality of life.

Increased mobility

Varicose veins can make moving around and engaging in physical activity challenging. Phlebectomy can help improve mobility and allow you to enjoy a more active lifestyle.

Quick recovery

Phlebectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that typically requires little downtime. Most patients can return to regular day-to-day activities within a few days, making it a convenient treatment option for busy individuals.

Say goodbye to uncomfortable varicose veins.

Phlebectomy surgically removes varicose veins from the legs using a minimally invasive technique. The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia and involves making small incisions in the skin through which the varicose veins are removed. Because the incisions tend to be less than 1/4 inch in size, they do not require stitches. After the veins are removed, the incisions are covered with a bandage or compression dressing. You can expect your procedure to take less than an hour to complete, and you can return to your everyday activities within a few days. Phlebectomy is a safe and effective treatment option for varicose veins, with a low risk of complications.

Smooth, healthy skin awaits.

Following the procedure, you must wear compression stockings for several days to minimize swelling and promote healing. You should also avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting for at least one week after the procedure. Walking and light exercise are encouraged to promote circulation and prevent blood clots. It's essential to keep the incision sites clean and dry and to follow any specific instructions provided by Dr. Gharai. Some patients experience bruising, swelling, and discomfort, but these symptoms generally subside within a few days.
