Who is the best vein removal Calabasas specialist?
Varicose veins are usually found in the legs, and there are a number of different causes. They are often hereditary and can be made worse by factors such as obesity. The legs are a common area for varicose veins to occur because they work harder in this area to pump the blood back to the heart. The valves that make sure the blood only travels in one direction, and in the legs these valves can weaken over time which means the blood flows backward and collects in pools.
Thankfully, if you do suffer from this condition, then vein removal Calabasas is an option that is available to you. Although other treatments are available, surgery to remove the problem veins is usually the most effective solution. Surgery can also be used to remove spider veins, which are smaller than varicose veins and can also appear on the face as well as the legs.

The operation will usually be performed under general anaesthetic, so you will be asleep while the procedure is being carried out. The veins that are causing the problem will be removed from an insertion that is made in the groin or the back of the knee.
