How Does Microphlebectomy Work?
Microphlebectomy is an outpatient procedure, allowing you to receive treatment and return home immediately afterward. Although you may experience side effects, you will not have to tolerate a prolonged downtime.
What Happens During Microphlebectomy Treatment?
To begin your treatment, Dr. Allen will administer an anesthetic to alleviate any discomfort and use ultrasound to locate the vein needing removal. He will make a small incision and begin carefully pulling the vein out from your leg.
Immediately after the procedure, you may experience some swelling and bruising as well as black and blue marks on the skin. Within a few hours, any significant side effects will dissipate, and you should notice an improvement in the appearance of your legs along with immediate pain relief.
