Varicose veins
More than Cosmetic: Varicose Veins
If you have varicose veins, understanding more about them can help you decide how to deal with them. Many people assume surgery for varicose veins is cosmetic in nature. This is true for some patients but for a large percentage of patients, varicose veins can also be associated with pain, aches, heaviness, restless legs, or burning and itching of the skin.
