Benefits of Removing Leg Varicose and Spider Veins

Varicose veins and spider veins are common vascular conditions that affect millions of individuals worldwide, causing not only cosmetic concerns but also potential health complications. Varicose veins are enlarged, swollen and twisted veins that usually appear blue or dark purple, often bulging from the surface of the skin, while spider veins are smaller, web-like veins that can be red, blue, or purple in color. Although these vein conditions may initially be perceived as merely cosmetic issues, they can also lead to discomfort, pain and more serious health problems if left untreated.

Health Benefits of Removing Varicose Veins

One of the primary reasons to consider removing varicose veins is to alleviate the symptoms associated with this condition and prevent potential complications. Varicose veins can cause symptoms such as aching, throbbing, heaviness and swelling in the legs, especially after prolonged standing or sitting. In some cases, varicose veins may lead to more serious complications, such as venous ulcers, blood clots and superficial thrombophlebitis. By undergoing varicose vein removal procedures such as sclerotherapy, endovenous laser treatment (EVLT) or ambulatory phlebectomy, patients can experience relief from these symptoms and reduce their risk of developing complications.

Improved Blood Circulation and Venous Health

Another significant benefit of removing varicose veins is the improvement in blood circulation and overall venous health. Varicose veins occur when the valves in the veins become weak or damaged, causing blood to pool in the affected veins and leading to increased pressure and inflammation. By removing varicose veins through minimally invasive procedures, blood flow is rerouted to healthier veins, reducing venous congestion and improving circulation. This not only helps alleviate symptoms such as pain and swelling but also reduces the risk of developing complications such as blood clots and venous insufficiency.

Enhanced Aesthetic Appearance and Self-Confidence

In addition to the health benefits, removing varicose veins can also improve the aesthetic appearance of the legs, leading to increased self-confidence and quality of life. Varicose veins and spider veins are often considered unsightly and may cause individuals to feel self-conscious about wearing certain clothing or exposing their legs in social settings. By undergoing vein removal procedures, patients can achieve smoother, more youthful and attractive-looking legs, allowing them to feel more comfortable and confident in their appearance.

Removing varicose and spider veins offers a wide range of benefits, including relief from symptoms, prevention of complications, improvement in blood circulation and enhanced aesthetic appearance. By addressing both the health and cosmetic aspects of varicose veins, patients can experience significant improvements in their overall well-being and quality of life. If you are experiencing symptoms of varicose veins or are concerned about the appearance of your legs, schedule a consultation with a board-certified vascular surgeon, Dr. Alan Benvenistry, M.D., to discuss your treatment options and determine the best course of action for achieving optimal venous health and aesthetic results.

Dr. Benvenisty was excellent and helped us with my husband's extensive leg swelling related to diabetes. We had another specialist who didn't help us last year. We're planning to stay with Dr. Benvenisty now! He's detailed oriented, matter-of-fact and friendly. An excellent doctor I would strongly recommend.


Dr. Benvenisty treated my mother in the ER during this time of the covid outbreak. He was a part of a fantastic team of doctors that were brought in to find out what was ailing my mother. He is first and for most experienced in many areas as my mother was diagnosed with pancreatitis. Although he transferred the surgery to another member of his team, he gave me his mobile and kept me informed of her condition/diagnosis at a time where I was unable to be with her myself because of this pandemic. His heart, compassion, understanding and bedside manner are things that I will not ever forget. He is an excellent doctor and truly a great human being.

Howard L.

Dr. Benvenisty is the most caring physician that I know. He is brilliant, highly ethical and trustworthy. His knowledge extends well beyond his specialty. He makes referrals to the best possible physicians. I know Dr. Benvenisty for 25 years and have complete confidence in him.
