FAQs

Does it require special preparation?

Ambulatory phlebectomy does not require any specific preparation besides the ultrasound study performed before the procedure. As this technique is performed with local anaesthesia, the client does not have to fast or observe special measures, like with other surgical procedures.

What post-treatment care must I have if I have undergone a phlebectomy?

The incisions made are minimal, so this technique does not require stitches or leave scars. Usually the specialist will recommend wearing compression stockings for 48-72 hours and applying vitamin K cream to facilitate reabsorption of the bruises that appear after the procedure.
