What Is Microphlebectomy?
Microphlebectomy is a non-surgical, minimally invasive approach for removing specific types of varicose veins. It involves the physical removal of veins from the backs of hands or legs. This process, which is also known as ambulatory phlebectomy, may be a good option for veins that are close to the skin, and it completely removes the frustrating vein.
What Could I Expect from the Treatment Process?
Microphlebectomy treatments are performed in the comfort of our Tennessee office on an outpatient person. The area is marked to indicate the specific areas of concern. Based on these markings, small nicks are made in the skin. These nicks are approximately 1 to 3 millimeters in size. Once these nicks are made, a tool is used to manually tease the vein out of the skin.
For your comfort during treatment, a local anesthetic may be utilized. The treatment process is relatively short, and there is no downtime associated with the process. While you should be able to return to most of your normal daily activities, you may be recommended to wear compression stockings.
Results achieved with microphlebectomy will vary for each person. However, the results are often visible immediately and they are intended to be permanent! All nicks made in the skin should fade from visibility within a year.
