Phlebectomy at the Vein and Skin Center of Hawaii

Minimally Invasive Solution for Removing Varicose Veins

At our clinic, we offer Phlebectomy, a gentle yet effective procedure aimed at removing prominent varicose veins. This minimally invasive surgical approach is best suited for patients who have large, bulging veins that are not ideal candidates for less invasive treatments.

What is Phlebectomy?

Phlebectomy, also known as ambulatory phlebectomy, is a procedure that involves removing sections of a varicose vein through small, strategically placed micro-incisions. This method is particularly effective for removing veins that are visible and protruding, providing both cosmetic and symptomatic relief.

Benefits of Phlebectomy

  • Effective Treatment: Directly removes problematic veins, offering immediate improvement in appearance and symptoms.
  • Minimal Scarring: The incisions are tiny, often healing with little to no visible scarring.
  • Quick Recovery: Most patients are able to resume daily activities within a day of the procedure, although we recommend avoiding strenuous activities for a short period.
  • Long-term Results: Provides lasting relief from the treated veins, enhancing both comfort and confidence.

The Procedure

  1. Consultation: You’ll start with a consultation where Dr. Chung will evaluate your veins and discuss if Phlebectomy is the best option for you.
  2. Procedure: Performed under local anesthesia, the procedure involves making small incisions through which the veins are removed. The incisions are usually small enough that they do not require stitches.
  3. Recovery: Post-procedure, you’ll wear compression stockings to aid healing, and most patients can walk around immediately after the procedure to promote circulation.

Post-Treatment Care

Walking is encouraged immediately after the procedure, and compression stockings are typically worn for about two weeks to minimize swelling and support the healing process. Minor bruising and swelling are common but usually resolve within a few weeks.
