A micro-phlebectomy can be performed in a doctor’s office using local anesthesia. First, a local anesthetic is injected into the area of varicose vein clusters to be treated. The doctor then uses a small scalpel to puncture the skin next to the varicose vein, inserts a small hook into the hole, grasps the vein and removes it. The area is covered with steristrips. We recommend wearing your compression stockings for 2-3 weeks following the surgery.
