MICROPHLEBECTOMY


Vein Specialists of the Carolinas

“All We Do Is Veins, All Day Every Day.”

MICROPHLEBECTOMY

  • Removes large bulging varicose veins that look like twisty ropes on your legs.
  • Replaces the older “ambulatory phlebectomy” that left numerous permanent scars.

How It’s Done

The technique involves numbing the skin and tissues around the veins. A very small incision or puncture is made. The vein is grasped by a very small hook and simply extracted from the incision. After the numbing, the only thing you feel is some tugging.

Aftercare

Bandages and compression garments are applied after the procedure. At home you need to keep your legs elevated for several hours. The compression garments need to be worn for 48 hours day and night. Regular activities can be resumed after the first day. Tylenol and advill are usually all that is needed for pain.

MICROPHLEBECTOMY Advantages

  • The incisions are so small they do not require stitches or leave scars.  
  • Does not leave a large firm red tender knot at the site (phlebitis).
  • Does not leave a brown stain that may take months to go away.
  • Some vein doctors do not offer microphlebectomy.

    Insurance companies will cover microphlebectomy as a secondary procedure after the underlying saphenous vein reflux has been corrected, but rarely as a stand-alone procedure.
