Many women are very embarrassed by large, bulging or dark veins on their breasts or around their nipples. It is particularly common in women who have had breast implants.

Many doctors will not treat these patients.

Techniques of breast vein removal:

Over the last 10 years, Prof Mark Whiteley of The Whiteley Clinic has been developing treatment protocols for breast veins.

Depending on the size and position of the veins, local anaesthetic surgery or injections of sclerotherapy can be used.

In addition, the use of ultrasound both to diagnose the veins and to guide treatments, ensures optimal results. In particular, in women who have had breast implants, it ensures that the veins can be safely treated without going anywhere near the implants.

As with all cosmetic treatments, it is essential to realise that the best results take many months to show.

However, if you do have prominent or dark green/blue veins on your breasts, treatment of these can be life changing. The increase in confidence that our patients report makes the treatment worthwhile.
