Micro-phlebectomy is one of the minimally invasive varicose vein treatment .During this procedure, tiny incisions are made in the skin (typically one or two millimeters long) just above the diseased vein. Through these openings, the diseased tortuous vein is removed.
Micro-phlebectomy is often performed following an endovenous laser therapy procedure to remove any remaining large surface varicose vein left behind after the underlying unhealthy vein is closed. This procedure can help to improve the appearance of unwanted visible varicosities and reduce or eliminate bothersome symptoms while preventing the progression of underlying venous disease.
Because of its minimally invasive nature, micro-phlebectomy leaves no scarring and does not require sutures or stitches.
Once the procedure is complete, patients are generally advised to wear compression bandages or compression stockings for 2 weeks to improve blood flow in the legs and ankles. Patients are able and encouraged to walk around almost immediately following the procedure and can return to normal activity in just a few days.
