Do You Who Maintain A Healthy Lifestyle?
Patients who are inactive or overweight are more likely to suffer from varicose veins. Sometimes, those patients who undergo this vein procedure without making significant changes to their lifestyle will see a recurrence of the condition down the road. This isn’t to say you can’t have the procedure if you’re overweight, but that it won’t solve the underlying problem. Before you sign up, consider making some diet and lifestyle adjustments to help set yourself up for success.
What Is The Severity Of Your Condition?
Varicose veins are a symptom of venous disease, which is the malfunctioning valve issue we addressed earlier. If your venous disease minor, you may not need to undergo vein ablations to solve it. Some patients see great results by making small, non-surgical adjustments like the wearing of compression socks and elevating your legs. This leads us directly to the next item on the list.
Have You Had A Vein Evaluation?
The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for vein ablations (or if it can be avoided altogether) is to meet with a cardiologist and have your veins evaluated. Every person, every vein, and every case is different and your cardiologist needs to take in all of your health factors before making a determination about what your next step should be.
Vein ablations are an easy outpatient surgery that can give great relief, both physically and mentally, to those who suffer from varicose veins. However, not everyone is a perfect candidate for the procedure. If you’re ready to rid your legs of those gnarled veins, contact us today and we’ll introduce you to a member of our team.
