Varicose Vein Removal in Southampton

These distinctively coloured blue or purple veins can appear twisted and raised, making them easily noticeable. They form due to faulty valves within the veins, leading to blood accumulation and subsequent vein enlargement. Factors like pregnancy can trigger their onset, and ageing often increases their prevalence.

What does the treatment for Varicose Vein Removal involve?

Here’s a snapshot of the procedure:

  • An in-depth ultrasound-based examination of the varicose veins to determine their extent.
  • If required, a mild sedative is administered for enhanced comfort.
  • Mapping and marking of problematic veins.
  • Use of local anaesthetic to numb the area.
  • Careful incisions allow for the removal of superficial and surface veins.
  • For deeper veins, treatments include either laser application or a foam solution.
  • Following the procedure, a protective bandage is placed, with a recommendation for light ambulation.
  • Patients are encouraged to don compression stockings for two weeks post-surgery, promoting better blood circulation and reducing potential complications.

Recovery from Varicose Vein Removal

A bit of swelling and bruising post-surgery is typical but generally subsides in a short span. To expedite recovery, I advise patients to have a few days of relaxation post-surgery and to consistently wear their compression stockings. This ensures optimal blood circulation and minimises potential issues.
