Introducing Next Generation Microphlebectomy
Safely and permanently remove unsightly varicose veins with no downtime and minimal pain or risk of scarring
Alsara Vein Clinic believes in the comprehensive treatment of venous disorders. Our goal is to offer long lasting results. We do not believe in band-aid treatments. Prior to performing microphlebectomy, we will examine the larger deeper veins in the legs using ultrasound. If there are problems with the deeper (feeder) veins, those must be addressed first, otherwise the chances of the veins returning or new varicose veins developing in the area are significantly higher. The deeper saphenous veins are typically sealed using a laser (endovenous laser ablation or EVLA). When microphlebectomy is coupled with EVLA, both procedures may be performed on the same day or scheduled a few weeks apart. A study using 76 patients demonstrated that 58.2% of legs treated with EVLA alone did not require further treatment with microphlebectomy. In most cases, EVLA allowed the varicosities to decrease in size or disappear altogether.
Microphlebectomy is a permanent fix for the varicose vein. The vein cannot come back. Other veins may develop and even appear in the same location, but those that have been removed are gone for good. If new veins should develop, they can easily be eliminated with sclerotherapy injections or microphlebectomy.
The procedure itself typically takes less than one hour to perform and requires no downtime. Further, microphlebectomy may be covered by medical insurance if you are experiencing symptoms such as aching, burning, itching or swelling in legs caused by varicose veins. There may also be some incidence of blood clots or bleeding. If symptoms are not present, the procedure will be considered cosmetic hence insurance coverage would be unavailable.
Patients are amazed at how easy the microphlebectomy procedure is and how quickly they can see positive results. Patients often comment on how sorry they are that they waited so long to get rid of their unsightly varicose veins that are also a health hazard.
