Many people have strongly negative feelings about what they consider “cosmetic surgery.” Some of them consider changing the way you look for the better to be “cheating” of some kind, and think people should just “stay the way God made ’em.” Many of the people who feel this way actually resent other people who have had cosmetic surgery, and think it’s something only rich, vain people do.
Would they feel differently, do you think, if they knew how many cases of severe clinical depression had been cured by cosmetic surgery, and how many people “got their lives back” after they had reconstructive surgery to reconstruct their faces after accidents, burns, or disfiguring diseases? When patients seeking vein treatment in Palm Beach tell us about their reluctance to even consider varicose vein removal because to them it’s “cosmetic surgery” and we remind them of cases like this, they often reply, “Well, that is different.”
Vein removal is different – yes, it improves your appearance, but its primary purpose is to improve your health
Varicose veins are unattractive. Anyone who has them can tell you that, as well as how depressing it is to look in the mirror every day and see your legs covered with swollen, discolored veins that cause you to reach for your dark stockings or long pants, just to hide your legs. Having this feeling every day is bad for your mental health because it robs you of self-confidence and self-esteem.
But anyone who has tried to “live with” their varicose veins for some time knows that they also impact your physical health. The side effects of varicose veins start with swollen legs and ankles, and can quickly escalate to feeling so chronically weak and tired that even walking can become painful. Left untreated, the swollen veins become infected and covered with sores that will not heal, leaving your legs even more of a bloody mess (literally) when you look into the mirror. And these are still only the surface symptoms – below the surface, the disease that causes varicose veins is impairing your circulation and increasing your likelihood of developing heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and stroke.
Varicose veins can’t be fixed, but they can be removed…and easily
Once the disease of chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) has crippled your veins enough that they become varicose, they cannot be repaired. But the modern techniques used by the best vein doctors in Palm Beach can eliminate both the unattractiveness of varicose veins and their side effects by removing the veins. Best of all, this vein removal is accomplished using minimally-invasive techniques that are so effective that they can be done in about an hour, in the comfort of your Florida vein specialist’s offices. There is no need to go to a hospital because techniques like sclerotherapy are so painless that anesthesia is rarely needed. You literally walk in with varicose veins, and walk out without them. It’s like magic.
It may take a few weeks for all traces of the varicose veins to disappear, but the improvements to your health start immediately
Once veins have been closed using modern vein treatment techniques, they are gone forever and won’t return. There may be lingering visual traces of them on the surface of your legs for a few weeks, but immediately you start to feel more energetic and feel fewer of the side effects of varicose veins, because healthier veins have taken over the job of routing blood back to your heart and lungs. As a result, your circulation returns to normal very quickly, and that allows your overall health to return to normal as well. Many patients who have had their varicose veins removed at South Palm Cardiovascular Associates have reported that they “felt ten years younger, in a matter of days.” Something that has that much of an impact on your life is not “just cosmetic surgery” – it’s potentially life-saving.
