Varicose veins

The excess of blood accumulation in certain ducts results in the inflammation of the veins when the circulation process is interrupted which we call varicose veins. It is a very common condition, especially in women, affects the aesthetics of the legs and can be very annoying.
Generally, it occurs when the person stays too long standing, causing heavy pressure on them with their own weight.

Currently, a surgical-aesthetic intervention is performed to correct this discomfort, by ligating the so-called tuberous veins and by removing the blood to stop its flow.

Expected results and risks

Soon after the surgery, the results achieved will be appreciated. As a surgical operation, it has low risks but has the use of general anesthesia. You should not worry about the bruises because they will disappear in a few days. There may be side effects such as redness, discharge or swelling of the legs.

The intervention

As with other vascular conditions, varicose veins cause blockage of the arteries. The surgery aims to find new circulatory channels to normalize the blood fluid. In general, the surgeon uses a segment of the same vein, and if this alternative is not possible, a graft will be used that will allow blood circulation thereafter.

Cares after the intervention

The surgeon will recommend the patient to follow a series of indications, after the surgery, such as the use of elastic stockings during the following 4 days and nights. At day 5, you can bathe normally and you must wear compression stockings until the doctor gives the full discharge. It will also do everything possible to avoid solar radiation and stand up for a long time or crossing legs. It is advisable to proceed with cold and hot water baths that will help the reactivation of the circulation.

Contraindications

Surgery for varicose veins is contraindicated in women in pregnancy or lactation. It is also not recommended for those suffering from respiratory or coronary diseases, as well as those who suffer from poor healing or coagulation (low level of hemoglobin). At the time of the examinations, the surgeon must evaluate the cases according to the different patients, so that they make the right decision.
