What is it?

‘Phleb-ectomy’ means ‘vein-removal’ and is the removal of the bulging veins that can be seen beneath the surface of the skin of the legs. It is effective at removing surface varicose veins and so is usually used in association with EVLA which deals with the underlying causes affecting deeper veins.

Is Phlebectomy treatment right for me?

Phlebectomy is a non-invasive treatment used to treat hand, arm and foot veins and varicose veins in the leg. Only surface veins are removed from the skin so if you are just looking to improve the appearance of your legs, this could be the best treatment.

Once your veins have been identified and marked and you have been injected with a local anaesthetic to the site of the affected area to numb it, the surgeon will make tiny incisions (no more than 2mm) over the veins. A fine hook is then used to pull the vein up through the skin until enough has been pulled out. You may feel a pulling sensation but this is completely safe and painless. After all the affected veins have been treated, some tape will be applied to the incisions to help them heal. The advantage of this procedure is that absolutely no stitches are required.


Your leg will be covered with dressing which should be left on for 24 hours. This is followed by the wearing of a compression stocking which should be worn for the first 2 weeks following the Phlebectomy procedure.

Normal activities can be fully resumed within 5-7 days post-procedure.
