Ambulatory Phlebectomy Vein Treatment in Costa Rica

Ambulatory phlebectomy is a procedure that consists in the removal of varicose veins on the surface of the legs. It can be done at your Better Looks doctor’s office under local anesthesia in Costa Rica. This vein treatment involves making tiny punctures or incisions through which the varicose veins are removed; these incisions are so small that no stitches are required afterwards.

Veins are very collapsible, which means that even large veins may be removed through the tiny incisions used in this technique. The patient is able to walk following the procedure. Ambulatory phlebectomy is recommended for medium and large varicose veins.

Most patients experience little to no discomfort and generally don’t even need pain medication after this treatment. In fact, you may stand and walk right after treatment, then return to work the next day.

For a Vein removal surgery (ambulatory phlebectomy), your Better Looks physician begins by numbing the area with a local anesthetic; this means that the procedure is virtually pain free. Small incisions (as small as 1mm) are made on the outside of the vein. A tiny hook is then inserted into the incision and a small portion of the varicose vein is removed. This is repeated until the entire vein has been eliminated. Ambulatory phlebectomy is a quick procedure, and because the incisions are so tiny, no stitches are required.

For the removal of varicose veins, doctors have actually developed a few procedures from which to choose from.

Surgery
The objective of this procedure is to remove as many of the problematic veins as possible and is performed under general anesthesia. At all moments, doctors try to maintain the 'deep veins' intact, since these change in these veins can cause serious circulatory problems, especially the saphenous vein (which runs the groin to the ankle).

Incisions are made in the problem areas in other to remove the varicose veins. Since these are superficial veins, they can be removed without complication, since they do not have a significant role in returning blood to the heart and taking them out does not affect the circulation of the leg at all.

This procedure can take up a few hours, since it is tedious and precise. By removing the problematic veins, the pain and discomfort the patient was experienced disappears. However, this vein surgery does leave scars, so you most keep this in mind. The more widespread and detailed the procedure, the more time it will take for new varicose veins to surface.

Laser therapy
This newly developed treatment is being experimented with by some of the most experienced surgeons in the removal of varicose veins. The objective of this procedure is to concentrate a continuous stream of high-intensity light to destroy or cut tissue.

Since this procedure is relatively new in the industry, its effectiveness hasn't really been determined, however, the results of varicose treatment using this therapy are highly promising and can have left many satisfied patients feeling better about themselves.
