How Obesity Can Create Varicose Veins

Published on January 25, 2017

Varicose veins, commonly referred to as spider veins, can be an aesthetic and physical issue. These swollen veins can give your skin an uneven complexion and an unappealing appearance and can cause a painful throbbing sensation.

Experiencing large amounts of physical strain often leads to the formation of varicose veins. Activities that require you to remain standing for long periods of time or that require prolonged use of your legs can cause varicose veins. Obesity can exacerbate these issues, as the body is placed under increased strain even during normal daily functions, which accelerates the issue.

Sclerotherapy and surgical vein removal are two highly effective and safe options that board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Keith Jeffords offers to help restore the appearance and comfort of our patients. Contact us to schedule a consultation and find the option that works best for you.
