What Is A Microphlebectomy?
Varicose veins may be just an unsightly cosmetic concern, but sometimes they can cause pain or lead to more significant problems, like blood clots or bleeding. If you have enlarged varicose veins that you wish to have treated, consider a microphlebectomy at Vein Institute Hattiesburg. Board-certified vein specialist Dr. J. Keith Thompson can perform a microphlebectomy, which is a minimally invasive procedure that improves the appearance of your skin by removing problematic varicose veins. If you would like to find out more information and see if you are a candidate for a microphlebectomy, call our practice in Hattiesburg, MS, today to schedule a consultation.
How Is A Microphlebectomy Performed?
In one of our private treatment rooms at our Hattiesburg, MS, office, the microphlebectomy procedure takes around 15 minutes to complete. Localized anesthesia to the affected area is typically used to help keep you comfortable so you don't feel much of anything. Once you are numb, Dr. Thompson will make a tiny micro-incision into the skin and then use a small specially designed device to remove the varicose veins directly underneath the skin. After the treatment is finished, he will put tiny bandages over the incision sites. You are up walking around immediately following the procedure so there is typically no downtime, but you do need to avoid strenuous activity for a few days.

What a wonderful place. I'm truly happy I went to see Dr Thompson. He closed an ugly feeder vein that has been my shame for several years. I can't wait for shorts and swimsuit weather. And all of his staff are extra sweet and caring. It was an excellent experience all the way around. I highly recommend the Vein Institute! You won't be disappointed.
