Varicose Vein Removal in Whiteley

Varicose veins are characterised by a dark blue or purple appearance and often appear twisted or bulging. This makes them very visible, which can often impact self-confidence.

Varicose veins occur when the valves inside your veins weaken, resulting in blood pooling and the enlargement of the vein. Sometimes, triggers such as pregnancy can lead to varicose veins. The likelihood of varicose veins increases with age.

What does the treatment for Varicose Vein Removal involve?

Here’s a brief overview of the treatment process I offer:

  • Our treatment approach begins with a comprehensive evaluation of varicose veins, incorporating the use of colour duplex ultrasound technology for precise diagnosis.
  • Patients who are deemed appropriate candidates may be offered a light sedative for optimal comfort during the procedure.
  • We proceed by charting the veins that are impacted.
  • Administration of local anesthesia ensures patient comfort.
  • Small incisions are carried out to extract both surface-level and more superficial veins.
  • We then target deeper feeding veins, employing laser technology for sealing or foam-based treatments.
  • Following the treatment, a bandage is applied. We often recommend light walking as part of the immediate post-treatment regimen.
  • For ongoing post-procedure care, wearing compression stockings for a fortnight is advised to support blood circulation and reduce potential deep vein thrombosis risks.

Recovery from Varicose Vein Removal

After the varicose vein removal procedure, it’s natural to experience bruising and swelling. These visible signs will diminish with time. I suggest that patients take it easy in the days following surgery and wear compression stockings as much as possible. Compression stockings boost blood flow and significantly reduce the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
