Phlebectomy – Micro Surgical Vein Removal

Laser treatment for varicose veins means the old version of surgical ‘stripping’ or pulling out of the veins is now rarely performed.

varicose-veins-216x300Micro or minimally invasive surgery has now superseded all the previous forms of vein surgery. This micro surgery is carried out in some cases at the same time as the endovenous laser treatment to help remove small areas that are simply too bulky to melt away. This procedure is known as phlebectomy and can also be used on its own for smaller veins if indicated.

By using micro incisions that are only 2mm in size the wounds heal very quickly and leave no marks, only super smooth legs.

Treatment Information

Varicose Vein Removal Surgery
Initial consultation and ultrasound scan £150
Microsurgical vein removal (phlebectomy) from £500

Phlebectomy is also included within the price of EVLA laser varicose vein removaltreatment, which may be a better treatment option.

Exact treatment cost can vary depending on the veins and technique used. We also offer microsclerotherapy for thread veins and foam sclerotherapy for smaller varicose veins.

A specific quotation will be given at consultation with our Vascular Surgeon. This detailed assessment includes an ultrasound scan at the same appointment, which enables both surgeon and patient to fully understand the problem before deciding on the most appropriate treatment.

Procedure

Phlebectomy (surgical removal of veins) is done under local anaesthetic.

Firstly, the surgeon will make micro punctures or tiny incisions in the varicose vein. Then the varicose veins are removed using a special phlebectomy hook which is used to pull out each varicose vein in turn. The incisions are so small that no stitches are required. Phlebectomy is included within our laser varicose vein removal procedure to ensure the best results and pricing. Microsurgical vein removal is also available on its own from £500. During your consultation your vascular surgeon will explain your options to you and help you decide which treatment is best for you.

Vein stripping is a method which the NHS traditionally tends to use for treating varicose veins.

However, it was associated with a high failure rate (50%) and painful long recovery. The NHS now do very little varicose vein removal. Vein stripping is no longer the first choice for varicose veins and we do not offer it at Cosmedics Skin Clinics.

The treatment has been superseded by EVLA (laser varicose vein treatment).

Our Vein Treatment Centre is based at our flagship Putney clinic in SW15.

I cannot believe the difference in my laser hair removal treatment under my chin caused by PCOS. I’m only on my fourth treatment out of six and I feel so much better, it’s as if there is no hair at all. My confidence is coming back! Thank you so much to Lydia for contributing so much to this! The reception team have always been lovely and accommodating. Thanks Cosmedics Skin Clinics UK.

Had a shave excision done with Dr Vardy twice so far - both were effortless and I’m so pleased with the result. She takes the time to explain everything and made me feel at ease. Won’t see anyone else for this procedure in the future!
