What is Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins are veins that are either over
stretched, enlarged or swollen, usually in the
legs, which can be felt under the skin and
sometimes prominently visible to the eye. They
can also appear in the feet and other parts of
the body. Varicose veins can vary in how they
look and feel. They are often lumpy, can appear
to bulge the skin and be purple / blue in
appearance. For people with varicose veins,
symptoms can often be felt in a number of ways
and can be worse in different conditions, such as
hot weather or if you stand for a long time at
work. Sometimes moving about or raising your legs
when you sit down can help ease symptoms.
What Treatments Are Available?
  • For patients who suffer with varicose veins,
    there are many treatment options available to
    combat the problem area. Available treatments are
    both surgical and non-surgical.
  • Depending on the severity of your varicose veins
    and how bothersome they are, your specialist can
    advise and discuss your options on an individual
    basis and help you identify whether or not you
    are an ideal candidate for vein surgery.
  • Treatments include
  • Surgical vein removal
  • Endovenous laser treatment
  • Sclerotherapy treatment
  • Radiofrequency ablation

Why Choose Varicose Vein Removal
  • Having prominent varicose veins can sometimes
    make people feel self conscious and have low self
    esteem. The thought of going on holiday or
    putting on a dress or pair of shorts on at hot
    summers day can cause stress and anxiety.
  • Removing varicose veins can sometimes remove this
    stress and anxiety and make feel more confident
    and secure in themselves.
  • Some of the reasons why people choose to remove
    their varicose veins include
  • To remove bulging and lumpy veins in their legs

Why Choose Varicose Vein Removal
  • To ease aching or the heavy feeling that can
    occur with varicose veins
  • To stop night time cramping
  • To improve the skin feel and appearance around
    the problem area
  • To stop feet, leg and ankle swelling caused by
    varicose veins.
  • To boost self confidence and self esteem
  • To be able to wear open clothing such as
    skirts, dresses and shorts
  • To take away the burden of feeling the need to
    hide legs / cover up with trousers and other

Recovery Aftercare
  • Once your procedure has finished, you will be
    taken to a recovery room (general anaesthetic) or
    outpatient clinic (local anaesthetic), where you
    will be monitored in the hours that follow,
    including taking your blood pressure and pulse.
  • Once the anaesthetic wears off, you will be able
    to eat / drink and will be required to do a water
    sample before being discharged for home. Before
    going home, you will be given an aftercare plan
    and told what to expect in the coming days /
    weeks. However, it is common to feel some level
    of anxiety when getting up and walking for the
    first few times.
  • Your aftercare plan / pack may include bandages
    for dressing wounds, stockings to support your
    legs and blood circulation and pain killers. It
    is important to follow your aftercare plan as
    closely as possible for up to six weeks post
    surgery, including sticking to the advice of your
    surgeon on how long to wear support stockings
    for. Resting is fine for the first 2-3 days after
    your varicose vein procedure, however it is
    important and recommended to slowly increase the
    amount of activity you do each day for the
    following 10-14 days.

Complications Side Effects
  • As with all types of surgery, there are risks,
    complications and side effects associated with
    varicose vein procedures.
  • These include
  • The feeling of tingling around the incisions in
    the legs.
  • Numbing of the area where the vein has been
  • Lumps can develop in the groin, which can be
    filled with blood, known as a haematoma. These
    require draining by a surgeon.
  • Discolouration of the skin where the vein used
    to be.
  • Injury to arteries, veins or surrounding
    tissue, although this is very rare.
  • Deep vein thrombosis, also known as DVT. This
    is the presence of a blood clot that has formed
    at some point during your surgery or aftercare.
    Clots can break up and move through the blood,
    causing complications with the lungs such as
    pulmonary embolism.

Complications Side Effects
  • It is extremely important to look out for any
    symptoms of deep vein thrombosis after your
    surgery, such as
  • Warm sensation in the legs
  • Leg pain
  • Swollen legs
  • Red tinged skin in the treated area
  • Infection
