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.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
