The diseases treated by the cosmetic physician specializing in vascular surgery and phlebology are venous diseases, which include the following:
- Vascular outbreaks and dysplasia of the veins in the lower extremities.
- Varicose veins of the perineum.
- Buttocks and vulvar lips.
- Trophic ulcers.
Phlebologic pathologies, which tend to be more frequent in women, have their origin in problems of poor blood circulation that produce an excessive and permanent dilation of the veins. The appearance of these diseases is associated with heredity, hormones, pregnancy and obesity. These diseases are not only an aesthetic problem, but they can also produce complications that manifest themselves with the appearance of a series of symptoms such as pain, itching, cramps, tiredness, swelling, heaviness.
Within phlebology there are a series of subspecialties that are used to treat the most prominent venous diseases:
– Sclerotherapy, which is an absolutely safe, painless, non-surgical treatment that leaves no scars on the skin.
- Laser therapy
- Hydrotherapy and ozone therapy
- Lymphatic drainage
When the patient begins to notice problems related to circulation or has varicose veins, it is important to go to the specialist for a phlebology examination. In this way, the phlebologist can evaluate whether the disorder is only aesthetic or whether it is related to a more serious problem. In some cases, non-invasive studies are requested to establish the most appropriate treatment.
There are a series of symptoms that indicate when it is necessary to consult the specialist in phlebology:
Sensation of heavy or tired legs, Cramps, Swelling of the ankles, Pain, Appearance of varicose veins or dilated superficial veins.
