Varicose Veins Cost Birmingham
Varicose veins appear most commonly on the legs as enlarged, twisted and bumpy veins
Usually, varicose veins are hereditary but they can be caused by factors such as pregnancy and weight gain. Varicose veins can be uncomfortable and unsightly often causing patients distress when it comes to revealing them and attending social occasions. Our Birmingham Veins Clinic is dedicated to finding a minimally invasive vein removal treatment best suited to you to ensure you receive the best results whilst avoiding any health issues that often come with varicose veins too.
Varicose Vein Treatments at our Birmingham Veins Clinic
We offer a selection of varicose vein treatments at our clinic in Birmingham all performed by vascular surgeons who have many years of experience. Many patients come to visit us after having previous vein stripping treatment, vein stripping treatment should only be used in exceptional circumstances according to NICE and it is not a treatment that we perform, or have ever performed at any of our vein clinics nationwide.
The varicose vein treatments that we offer in Birmingham are:
EVLA – Endovenous laser ablation treatment is our most commonly performed treatment for varicose veins. It is considered the gold standard of varicose vein treatment by NICE and the success rate after five years for EVLA treatment is 95.4%. Treatment involves inserting laser fibre into the areas being treated. The laser fibre heats the varicose veins causing the walls of the veins to become damaged and collapse. The varicose veins are then absorbed naturally by the body. EVLA is suitable for the majority of patients who come to see us although some patients may require a combined treatment with Phlebectomy for example to get the best results.
Phlebectomy – A Phlebectomy is a microsurgical enlarged vein removal procedure which effectively removes varicose veins from the surface of the skin. Small 1-3mm incisions are made to remove the varicose veins from the leg. The scars from a Phlebectomy procedure are very small and often become barely noticeable for many patients in the months following their procedure. Phlebectomy procedures are only effective at removing the surface veins, therefore, it is common for this procedure to be performed in combination with another varicose vein procedure sure as EVLA to treat the underlying vein source.
Sclerotherapy – Sclerotherapy treatment is usually performed on patients who have thread veins, but instead of using a liquid solution, foam sclerotherapy instead uses a stronger foam version of the solution which is much more effective at treating larger varicose veins. Your surgeon will use ultrasound to help guide where to inject the treatment. Once injected, inflammation occurs within the vein which causes the blood to be pushed out of the vein and instead redirected into healthier veins located deeper within the leg. Over the course of 1-2 weeks post-treatment the varicose veins treated will become sticky and close up gradually being absorbed by the body. Foam sclerotherapy is ideal for patients with isolated leg varicose veins, those with extensive and large veins may require additional or combined varicose vein treatments.
We also offer thread vein treatments at our Birmingham Vein Clinic with microsclerotherapy treatment for thread veins on the legs starting from £250.

Varicose Vein Before and After Photos
“Six months after receiving EVLA and Foam Sclerotherapy for terrible knobbly varicose veins on both of my legs, I feel I can leave a very positive review. Professor Rajiv Vohra who performed the procedure at the Birmingham clinic told me I would be pleased with the results and I certainly am. I have gone from hiding my legs away, even during the hottest of summers to wearing shorts and dresses at every opportunity, not thinking twice about it. The procedure itself was slightly uncomfortable but bearable, nothing I wouldn’t consider doing again if I had to and all the staff were caring and considerate, keeping me informed of what the professor was doing and checking that I was comfortable at all times. It’s taken 6 months for the bruising and discolouration to fade and I am so happy with the results that I wonder why I didn’t have it done years ago.”
Dawn – Walsall
“I received Varicose vein removal in both legs. The staff at the clinic were very professional and friendly. Professor Vohra carried out the procedure and I am really happy with the results so far. I looked at many different clinics, The Private Clinic Birmingham offers an informal chat for £25 which is fully refundable when you turn up for your no obligation appointment, I met with the patient coordinator. This gave me an opportunity to see the clinic, meet the staff and ask any questions before meeting the surgeon. Thank you to The Private Clinic for looking after me so well.”
Varicose Vein FAQs
What are varicose veins and what are thread veins?
Varicose veins and thread veins are two different types of venous conditions and require different types of treatment. Varicose veins are enlarged veins that are often dark purple or blue in colour and most frequently appear on the legs.
Thread veins can appear on the face including under the eye as well on the legs. They are often red or blue in colour and actually sit closer to the surface of the skin than varicose veins.
It is worth noting that if you suffer from thread veins on the legs in particular then this could indicate underlying vein problems such as varicose veins. This is why when seeking thread vein treatment, your practitioner may recommend seeing a vascular surgeon for an ultrasound scan first to rule out needing varicose vein treatment first.
What happens at a varicose vein consultation in Birmingham?
Varicose vein consultations at The Private Clinic with a vascular surgeon will include a free ultrasound scan. This allows the surgeon to thoroughly assess your varicose veins with the best accuracy to ensure that the most suitable treatment is selected for you. Your surgeon will also go through the varicose vein removal treatment in more detail and detail any risks to enable you to make a fully informed decision before committing to surgery.
At our Birmingham clinic we also offer varicose vein consultations with a patient coordinator which is a great first step if you are just looking to find out more about the treatment options available, the surgeon and the clinic.
How long is the recovery time after varicose vein treatment?
The downtime after any of our walk-in, walk-out non-surgical varicose vein removal treatments is minimal with the majority of patients being able to return to their everyday activities straight away.
Most patients are able to return to work the following day after EVLA or Sclerotherapy treatments. Those that had a Phlebectomy treatment may wish to take an additional couple of days to recover first.
You won’t be able to drive immediately after the procedure, but you are free to drive the day after providing you are feeling well and that your ability to drive safely is not compromised.
Strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least 5 days and it should be returned to at a gradual pace. This is to avoid unnecessary injury, but it is recommended that you do keep active by taking regular walks.
