Large, bulging veins of the arms are usually completely normal – especially if you are fit and have low body fat.
However, many people do not like their arm veins and want the more prominent ones to be removed.
Although it is not sensible to remove all of the arm veins, the more noticeable ones can be removed using the phlebectomy procedure.
At The Whiteley Clinic, we discuss with you which veins you want to get rid of. Then we perform a duplex ultrasound to check which are safe to remove and mark them on the skin.
Under local anaesthetic, the veins are removed using the phlebectomy method. Tiny incisions are made and closed with steri-strip plasters (no stitches needed).
Occasionally we recommend other treatments such as laser or foam sclerotherapy, depending on the size and extent of your veins.
The cost for these treatments vary. Phlebectomy of the veins starts from £3000.
The best method(s) of treatment and a personalised treatment plan will be discussed at your consultation. It is during your consultation that you will be advised on recovery times and pre and post-care advice that you will need to take into consideration when planning for your treatment.
For more information about the above treatments or to book your consultation, please call 0330 058 1850 or email [email protected]. We look forward to welcoming you to our clinic.
