Noticed Large Vein After Surgery, Best Treatment? Will Insurance Cover It?

I noticed a big facial vein after lower jaw surgery.  What's the best treatment?  Will insurance cover?

Facial vein treatment


I have seen this happen before following facial surgery. Interruption or disruption of veins can cause new veins to grow. I would allow 6 months post procedure to see if they  spontaneously resolve. If not, then I would recommend sclerotherapy to resolve them.
