Ambulatory Phlebectomy

This is a good treatment option for varicose veins, for people who are not good candidates for sclerotherapy. It’s a surgery to remove the protruding varicose veins.

Your Treatment Experience

Ambulatory Phlebectomy is an outpatient surgical procedure that takes about one hour. Before the surgery, we have you stand so we can mark the veins that protrude. We numb the area, then make a tiny incision by each varicose vein and surgically remove the bulging part.

Typically, the incisions are small enough they don’t require sutures, just small bandages. You may experience some mild bruising or swelling for up to 48 hours afterward. We will give you ace wraps or compression socks to make recovery more comfortable. You should see full results in 4-6 weeks, and you should be able to resume normal activity in 1-2 days.

Expected Results

The procedure leaves smooth legs with minimal scaring. It is possible for new varicose veins to appear, and the procedure may need to be repeated once after the initial treatment.
