While pregnancy can be a blessing, it is no secret that the rapid changes undergone by the female body often create a variety of unpleasant health effects. Unfortunately, the formation of varicose veins can be one of these effects.
Like many causes of varicose veins, the main culprit tying varicose veins to pregnancy is the additional weight that a pregnant woman must carry, increasing excess internal pressure on the veins and causing them to become twisted or otherwise visible through the surface of the skin. While this kind of internal pressure is not unique to pregnant women, it can be especially acute on account of how quickly pregnancy tends to increase body weight. While maintaining a healthy recommended weight during pregnancy can often decrease a woman’s chances of suffering from varicose or spider veins, their occurrence is often unavoidable. The good news is that we offer a variety of highly effective minimally invasive treatment options that keep the health of both mother and baby in mind.
Personalized medical care is especially important for women during pregnancy, and that is why Visible Varicose Vein Center offers personalized, one-on-one consultations with our board certified vein specialist in order to lay out a safe and effective treatment plan for all of our patients.
