Varicose Veins Cost Bristol
Varicose veins are enlarged swollen veins that are most commonly found on the legs.
Varicose veins often run in families but they can also be caused by pregnancy and weight gain. Those suffering from varicose veins often complain of the cosmetic problems and how they feel embarrassed to wear certain items of clothing that reveal their legs which can be difficult on hot days or on holiday. Others complain of discomfort caused by varicose veins, swollen feet and a muscle cramps. At our Bristol Veins clinic, we have a team of dedicated experts who will not only seek to find a treatment to improve the visible appearance of varicose veins but also the painful side effects and health issues that are commonly associated with varicose veins too.
Varicose Vein Treatments at our Bristol Veins Clinic
When it comes to choosing a treatment for Varicose Veins, our Bristol veins clinic is proud to offer patients a range of the most up-to-date and minimally invasive procedures around. Varicose vein treatments in Bristol are all performed under local anaesthetic with the patient being able to leave to recover at home shortly after their procedure. Our treatments are performed at our state-of-the-art in-house theatre meaning you will not need to travel to the hospital.
Previously, vein stripping has been used to remove varicose veins. We have not performed this treatment at any of our nationwide veins clinics and according to NICE this treatment option should not be used except in exceptional circumstances. We instead focus on offering our patients safe and effective minimally invasive procedures with reduced downtime and no need for an overnight stay.
Procedures performed in our Bristol veins clinic;
EVLA – Endovenous Laser Ablation is performed under ultrasound guidance where a thin fibre probe is inserted into the area being treated and laser energy is delivered in short pulses to heat and seal the varicose vein causing the blood to be unable to flow through it. The blood flow will quickly re-route deeper within the leg to healthy veins and the faulty vein will then be gradually broken down by the body over time. EVLA is our most popular varicose vein treatment with its 95.4% success rate and ‘Gold Standard’ treatment recommendation from NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence).
Foam Sclerotherapy – Varicose veins can also be treated with foam injections known as Foam Sclerotherapy. Foam Sclerotherapy uses a chemical called sclerosant which causes scarring and inflammation inside the leg varicose veins causing them to close and the blood within it to re-route to healthier veins located deeper within the leg. The vein is then gradually broken down naturally by the body.
Phlebectomy – An Ambulatory Phlebectomy procedure is ideal for enlarged vein removal and removing surface varicose veins. The procedure does involve making some very small 1-3mm incisions to allow the vein to be removed using a small hook. Once removed, the leg will instantly look smoother and free of the previous bumps and lumps that varicose veins caused. A Phlebectomy is often performed after an EVLA procedure to remove any large surface veins that may have been left behind after the procedure.
We also offer thread vein treatments at our Bristol Vein Clinic with microsclerotherapy treatment for thread veins on the legs starting from £250.

Varicose Vein Before and After Photos
“Today I attended the Private clinic at Whiteladies Road, Bristol. I had a consultation with Mr Charles Ranaboldo. I was nervous about attending, but am so glad that I did. From the moment I walked in the door I felt welcomed and my husband & I were offered a cup of coffee. The nurse was a very friendly lady and put me at ease. When I met Mr Ranaboldo he was very professional and thorough, but equally explained things very clearly of what to expect. I have had my varicose for over 30 years, but having spoken to Mr Ranaboldo he put me so much at ease, that I can’t wait to now have it removed and have booked for 2 weeks’ time. Thank you all so much.”

Varicose Vein FAQs
Do I have varicose veins?
Varicose veins are swollen, twisted, and enlarged veins that may be dark purple or blue in colour.
Weak or damaged valves can cause varicose veins to form as the blood can flow backward and pool in the vein, causing the vein/s to stretch and swell.
Varicose veins can also cause:
- Aching in the Legs
- Burning Sensation in the lower legs
- Pain after sitting or standing for a long time
- Itching around one or more of your veins
- Skin discoloration
If you are still unsure if you have varicose veins or not, then we recommend visiting us for a consultation with our expert vascular surgeon who will be able to diagnose and suggest a suitable treatment plan for you if relevant.
Am I suitable for varicose vein treatment?
We offer a range of varicose vein treatments meaning we are likely to have a treatment option that is suitable for you.
There is no age range for varicose vein treatment. We see patients from a mix of ages and all have found the treatment to be almost life changing and many wonder why they waited so long.
As long as you are able to wear the compression stocking as advised by your surgeon and walk daily as directed then you will be a suitable candidate for varicose vein treatment at The Private Clinic in Bristol.
The best option is to come and talk with our specialist vascular surgeons who will advise you on the best options to treat your varicose veins.
Can all my varicose veins be treated in one sitting?
There is no limit on the number of veins that can be treated on the same day although there is a restriction on the amount of local anaesthetic that can be safely used.
If you require treatment in both legs, then some patients do prefer to have two treatments to reduce their downtime.
You will be able to discuss your treatment plan in consultation with our expert vascular surgeon.
