Microphlebectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that you may benefit from.
Occasionally, some veins form in the context of minimal reflux that is not detected by ultrasound. If they are painful or cosmetically unappealing, these vessels need to be removed through a procedure called microphlebectomy. This too can be performed using minimal invasive technology: tiny incision, local anesthesia and very short recovery time.
MediLaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center offers microphlebectomy surgery to remove unsightly varicose veins through 3mm incisions. After the procedure, the pain is minimal and the return to work is immediate. The cosmetic result of this procedure is dramatic since the corresponding incisions are so small that the scar formation is minimal if any at all.
Anyone who has unsightly dilated veins and wants to have a rapid resolution of their condition in the context of a negative ultrasound for reflux disease is a good candidate.
Yes, when it is performed to alleviate pain and discomfort.
