My experience was great!

I was worried that I would have my surgery in a foreign country alone, but Luna Clinic made me feel right at home. They attended to my every need right away, and I didn’t feel alone even for one second. Thanks for everything. My experience was great!

Excellent Service from Abud of Flymedi

Abud was excellent in arranging my visit to Istanbul for both Eyelid and Hair Treatment. I decided to combine both treatments at Estecenter due to the clinics reputation. recommendations and also Abud's guidance. Abud clearly communicated the types of treatments available , estimated costs , all treatment schedules , travel logistics , hotel arrangements and daily transportation to and from clinic. Through responses coordinated between Abud and Estecenter he answered all my questions beforehand and was concise in the cost of treatments being communicated by Estecenter . Truly excellent service and i highly recommend you engage Abud as this leaves you know worries in relaxing during and after your very important treatments that you waited so long to have done Also i decided to stay and additional 7 days , at my own cost in Istanbul, to help my recovery.

Life changing !

I had a massive operation with a full body lift that actually required 2 separate visits to Turkey which was very daunting for me to commit to but I’m so happy I did. I’ve never felt comfortable in my own skin and really struggled with my body especially after having 2 kids. It was really nice to do something for myself and Luna clinic made the experience hassle free for me. They were there for me from beginning to end through both visits and it couldn’t have gone better for me. Thank you so much for the life changing operation and experience.

Overview

Varicose veins treatment, otherwise called varicose vein removal or vein stripping surgery is an operation carried out to get rid of varicose veins.

Varicose veins are veins that turn out to get twisted or enlarged. While the term generally mentions to the veins in the legs region, varicose veins can show up in nearly every body parts.

Varicose veins are somewhat usual in the superficial veins of the legs, because of increased pressure put upon them while standing. It is not merely a cosmetic issue, but also a well-being one. Lacking treatment, this condition can as well result in: 

● Leg swelling
● Venous eczema
● Skin thickening
● Ulceration
● Deep vein thrombosis

Varicose veins treatment, otherwise called varicose vein removal or vein stripping surgery is a harmless operation since the majority of the blood circulation in the legs region is performed via the deep veins, not the superficial veins which are vulnerable to developing to a varicose. For that reason, the veins may be detached without any issues.

Preparation

Patients should take a number of tests, for instance, ECG, blood tests and ultrasound scans, before the varicose veins treatment. These tests are done so as to guarantee that the patient is suitable for the operation.

How It Is Performed

Varicose veins treatment operation can be completed either under general anesthesia or local anesthesia. It relies upon the place of the veins.

When the anesthesia entered, the specialist will continue to make one or more incisions in the impacted vein region. At that point, a particular kind of wire will be brought into the vein, profound enough to bind to it. The wire is then pulled out, along with the affected vein. The small incisions are then sewed up, and the region is enclosed by dressings.
A pressure bandage, with a compression garment, may likewise be used. Patients may be requested to stay a night in hospital, in medical supervision.

Recovery

The compression garment has to be worn for no less than 10 days after the varicose vein removal operation. Patients may go back to work and usual activities in about 1 to 3 weeks after the operation. Hot showers should be stayed away for the initial 2-3 days after the vein stripping operation.

Risks

Risks and complications of varicose veins treatment may involve one or more of the accompanying:

● Extensive bleeding
● Infection at the incision place
● Deep vein thrombosis
● Pulmonary embolism
● Chest infections
● Varicose veins recurrence
● Nerve injury in the operation site

Side Effects

Side effects of varicose veins treatment operation can involve:

● Pain
● Discomfort
● Slight bleeding from the incision place
● Bruising

Success Rates

The average success rate of varicose veins treatment is about 89%.

Before And After

Everyday exercise is suggested to patients following the varicose veins treatment. The exercise routine should, to begin with, short walks, before progressively returning to more physically challenging activities. Patients may sense their legs sore or painful during walking, but it supports to lessen the risk of deep vein thrombosis after the varicose veins treatment is done.

Faq

- Are there any non-surgical alternatives to vein stripping operation or varicose vein removal surgery?
Yes, lasers can be used as a varicose veins treatment. Other options include elastic stockings, exercise and leg elevation, but these treatments are not as reliable as varicose vein removal surgery.

- What is the chance of recurrence after varicose veins treatment?
It happens to about 1 in 15 patients, over a ten year period.

- Is the varicose veins treatment painful? Not at all, since it's all done under anesthesia. Patients will as well be provided with painkillers which can be used during the recovery period.
