What is a microphlebectomy?

The Right Tool for the Job

Many treatments for regular or chronic venous insufficiencies work by shrinking the veins or turning them into scar tissue.

A microphlebectomy is a minimally-invasive procedure that is either performed in conjunction with the ablation procedure or is staged as a separate procedure, depending on the severity of your varicose veins. The microphlebectomy procedure is also performed under twilight sedation for a pain-free experience, where the provider removes the troubled veins through tiny incisions. It may sound uncomfortable, but most people agree it is quick and painless thanks to local anesthetic and special tools.

The Benefits of Microphlebectomy

Feel Like Yourself Again

When it comes to direct results, a microphlebectomy can eliminate any pain and discomfort from your varicose veins as well as render them no longer visible!

In the long term, you are also avoiding more serious health risks associated with venous insufficiencies. Also, the procedure itself is typically done in no more than 30 to 60 minutes, and you can return home the same day.

Am I a good candidate for a microphlebectomy?

A Long-Term Solution for Varicose Veins

You might be a good candidate for a microphlebectomy if your varicose veins are causing you any pain or discomfort or if you dislike their appearance. Everybody's situation is unique, so it's important to consult your doctor about whether or not this treatment is the one for you.

A Typical Microphlebectomy Procedure

Paving the Road to a Healthier You

Prior to your procedure date, your doctor will provide specific instructions to prepare you for a successful treatment, such as pausing certain medications.

The procedure will take place under “twilight sedation,” which is administered by one of our Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists to provide a pain-free experience. Post-procedure, your treatment area will be bandaged, and you will be given instructions to follow during your recovery. Since microphlebectomy requires sedation, you will need to arrange for a ride home.

Microphlebectomy Recovery Expectations

Careful Care and Passionate Compassion

You will be able to return to most normal activities after 24 hours, but there are some care guidelines you will need to follow. For up to two weeks, you will need to avoid strenuous physical activity and hot baths and wear compression socks to support your recovery. The incisions made during the treatment usually don't require any stitches and heal on their own. After two to three months, the area will look as good as new, with the exception of mild discoloration. These are general guidelines. Your situation may be slightly different, so it is important to follow the care plan created for you after your treatment.

The Results

Look Good. Feel Better.

You will notice a decrease in pain or discomfort, and your varicose veins will no longer be visible. The risk of long-term health effects from venous insufficiencies is greatly reduced. For the best possible results, follow the post-op care instructions given to you.
