After treatment of the saphenous veins via radiofrequency ablation or VenaSeal, most varicosities tend to flatten out and are not as visible as they were prior to treatment. In some cases, these varicosities are fed by other branches of veins and need to be treated individually. Heart of Dixie Vein and Vascular Center can treat these varicosities in our office with a minor procedure known as phlebectomy or microphlebectomy.
Microphlebectomy is the removal of varicose veins through tiny incisions on the leg. No stitches are necessary. This procedure is minimally invasive, leaving no scarring, and uses local anesthetic only. Coverage by insurance can be discussed with the Heart of Dixie Vein and Vascular team.
