Leg Vein Screenings
Schedule your evaluation in Birmingham or Auburn
Hedden Plastic Surgery is now offering Leg Vein Screenings at our Greystone Cosmetic Center home in Birmingham and at Hedden Plastic Surgery & Auburn Medispa in Auburn, Alabama. These screenings are performed to check for symptoms of Chronic Venous Insufficiency, which include enlarged, discolored veins that are not only unsightly but can pose multiple health risks.
Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) is a long-term medical condition that occurs because of partial vein blockage or blood leakage, typically in the deeper leg veins. Left untreated, varicose veins can cause aching, throbbing pain and put individuals a higher risk for more serious circulatory disorders.
It would be easy if we could pinpoint a single cause of varicose veins, but that’s not possible. There are many factors that increase your risk, such as family history, excess pressure on your legs from standing, being overweight and pregnancy to name just a few. While you can’t stop the development of varicose veins, you can take proactive steps to treat them.
