It’s reasonable to wonder whether removing varicose veins adversely affects blood flow in your legs. But it doesn’t.
One reason is that the most commonly damaged veins near the surface of your legs carry a small percentage of the blood flow; they are much smaller than the large, more important veins deeper in your leg.
In fact, when the varicose veins are removed, you will not only feel better but blood flow from your legs to your heart should improve as your healthy veins take over. Your legs will feel lighter, they will look better, and you will eliminate the dangerous symptoms that varicose veins can cause.
This is true no matter what type of vein treatment you choose.
Any time you have a question about varicose veins and their treatment, please contact the doctors at The Vein Institute of Connecticut.
