Meet a remarkable 32-year-old woman who transformed her life at the Melbourne Varicose Vein Clinic, overcoming the misery of protruding varicose veins that had bothered her since adolescence. Her journey is a testament to the expertise and dedication of our vein expert.
This young, active mother of a few young kids had endured the presence of unsightly varicose veins on her left thigh and lower leg, as well as her right thigh. These abnormal veins progressed over the years, affecting her quality of life. She experienced swelling and heaviness in her legs, especially during physical activity and pregnancies. Long periods of standing worsened her discomfort, alleviated only by relaxation, elevating her legs, and the consistent use of compression stockings—classic symptoms of varicose vein issues. She also grappled with concerns about the aesthetic aspect and potential health effects of these abnormal veins, impacting her active lifestyle.
Vein Treatment Procedure
During her visit to our clinic, a comprehensive examination revealed varicose veins in both legs, more prominently in her left leg. A Duplex Ultrasound (DU) examination identified the Great Saphenous Vein (GSV) as the source of her surface varices, a major truncal vein.
Our expert team crafted a personalized treatment plan to address the source of her varicose veins. We opted for Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA), a highly effective technique with a success rate of up to 95% when performed by experienced professionals. Administered under local anesthesia, this outpatient procedure allowed our patient to walk in and walk out.
Following EVLA, we complemented her treatment with ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy (UGS) and ambulatory microphlebectomy, targeting visible and non-visible abnormal branches stemming from the refluxing GSV. The procedure caused minimal discomfort and downtime.
Just four months after completing four sessions of this treatment cycle, a photograph captured her newfound vitality. She radiated satisfaction, both aesthetically and medically. Her distressing symptoms vanished, and the varicose veins disappeared. One year later, we revisited her case, and the results remained consistent—she remained varicose vein-free.
This success story highlights the exceptional outcomes achievable with the expertise and advanced techniques at the Melbourne Varicose Vein Clinic. Our commitment to improving lives shines through each success story. Take the first step towards a varicose vein-free future by scheduling a consultation with our vein expert today.
