Texas Vein & Aesthetics offers microphlebectomy for the removal of varicose veins in both office locations, Denton and Frisco. The "micro" part of the name describes the virtually unnoticeable incisions made in the leg. This is where access is made that allows removal of uncomfortable and unsightly varicose veins that lie close to the surface of the skin. The cuts are so tiny that usually they are closed with only a small piece of medical tape, rather than stitches.
A patient of a microphlebectomy will be able to have medium to large varicose veins removed that are causing them to experience pain or embarrassment. The procedure is performed safely in the office by our experienced doctor, assisted by qualified and compassionate staff. The process is brief, requiring roughly an hour to complete. Only local anesthesia is necessary to ensure a patient’s comfort for the short treatment period. As a result of this minor surgery, blood flow is simply redirected through other vascular avenues that lie further below the surface. This provides improvement in appearance, as well as circulation. The results of the procedure are evident immediately, and a patient will generally experience only minor pain or discomfort afterwards. This is most often alleviated with an over-the-counter medication such as ibuprofen or naproxen. Sometimes there is slight bruising from the therapy, but this will fade quickly. Movement is encouraged soon after surgery, and runners may be back to their activity in as few as seven days.
Microphlebectomy patients are usually more than satisfied with their outcomes! Pain relief is immediate, appearance is corrected; and the surgery provides permanent results, as removed veins will not reform. To find out which vein treatment is most suitable, patients will undergo a consultation before treatment. Microphlebectomy is just one of the exceptional vein services offered by Texas Vein and Aesthetics to provide relief for our valued patients. We are committed to learning as much as we can about our patients, their medical history, and their health and lifestyle, in order to recommend the ideal treatment option.
