Medial thigh lift - varicose vein treatment a week later?

Thank you for asking about your thigh lift.
  • You should absoloutely not have endovenous laser ablation of varicose veins until you are completely healed from the thigh lift
  • AND your surgeon has approved your having the treatment.
  • Laser treatment now could easily cause serious healing problems in the thigh lift.
