Microphlebectomy is a minimally invasive surgical technique designed to remove superficial varicose veins from the legs. It is similar to the ambulatory phlebectomy procedure, emphasizing the use of small, micro-incisions for vein removal.

Conditions Treated

Microphlebectomy is primarily used to treat superficial, bulging veins that close to the surface of the skin. It is not a treatment for deep vein issues, but rather a targeted approach to address visible varicose and spider veins and improve both their appearance and related symptoms.

Procedure Overview

  • Preparation

    Before your procedure, a thorough evaluation of your veins is conducted. The area is numbed using a local anesthetic to minimize any potential discomfort during the procedure.

  • Incisions

    Small micro-incisions, typically about 1-2 mm in size, are made over the varicose veins.

  • Vein removal

    A special hook is then used to gently remove the targeted varicose veins through these tiny incisions. This allows for precise removal with minimal scarring.

  • Closure and removal

    Once the targeted veins are removed, the incisions are left to heal on their own. In most cases, they are so small that they do not require stitches. Over time, the incisions fade and will leave very minimal scarring.


The procedure is typically well-tolerated as local anesthesia is used to numb the area. Patients may experience some mild discomfort or a pulling sensation during the vein removal, but this is usually minimal.

The incisions made during microphlebectomy are tiny, often leaving only small marks that fade over time and are barely noticeable.

The duration of the procedure varies depending on the number and size of veins being treated. On average, microphlebectomy typically takes 30 minutes to an hour.
