Varicose vein surgery is one solution to the problem of varicose veins, but it may not be the best one. There are quite a few methods of treating varicose veins, and surgery is perhaps the most invasive one. Although the surgeries used to treat this problem, swollen, discoloured veins that resemble red, or blue discolourations on the skin like a spider web, and thus the term ‘spider veins,’ have advanced over time, they still seem rather archaic and crude compared to simple home treatments that are available.
Is surgery necessary for a varicose vein?
Varicose vein surgery can take on one of many forms. Some surgeries even sound rather distasteful, such as vein stripping, wherein a vein is surgically tied off at one end and then a part of it is removed. With vein ligation, small incisions are made where the varicose veins arise, and blood flow is stopped into the vein by tying it off. In yet another surgery commonly used today, called ambulatory phlebectomy, tiny holes are surgically rendered in the skin and the vein is then removed.
If someone could avoid varicose vein surgery with these types of practices being conducted, you would think they would try another, less invasive approach. There are ways to treat varicose veins that don’t require surgery, the removal or anything or the tying off of a vein. The body needs that vein to transport blood so it makes no sense to remove it unnecessarily. While this may be a last-ditch effort to help really bad varicose veins that are bulging excessively and causing horrible swelling, it makes no sense to attempt these surgeries for veins that are usually a more cosmetic problem than anything else. And surely, if there is a way to treat them with a simple home remedy, that would make surgery pale in comparison as a viable option.
Homemade varicose vein treatment
Many doctors prescribe surgery for ailments unnecessarily these days also because they make more money from you as a patient than if they told you to just go home and take a few simple herbs to cure your problem. Some doctors really do have your health in mind, and aren’t greedy jerks trying to make money off your pain or discomfort, but have not been taught alternative ways of healing the body in medical school or their training is outdated by several decades in which time many advances, including simple solutions, have been put forth. Varicose vein surgery is often unnecessary; instead, you can try a non-invasive home solution, and costs you next to nothing.
The cost of home vein treatment is not that much, compared to surgery the DIY remedies are amazing value for money. Legs are one of those areas we are happy to show off so having them look good is a “must” for some folk, this is some people will go to any lengths to treat spider veins and lumpy legs.
Although you can seek laser treatment please be aware that there are always new treatments being made available, these can be non-surgical and also low cost.
