I am an active outdoor person, wearing shorts a lot of the time and I became very self conscious about my varicose veins. I desperately needed to do something to make me feel better. The veins were unsightly and frankly I was embarrassed by them. Having investigated the idea of surgery, I felt it was about time I did something. So I got in touch with Dr Gajraj and made a appointment. The surgery itself couldn’t have been simpler, I did not have any pain and I was well cared for before I left for home. The results and difference are amazing. I’m now happy to wear my shorts again and my wife thinks I’ve got sexy legs!

I decided to have my veins treated because, although I exercise regularly and my legs are quite toned, my left leg had a lumpy vein which protruded and looked unsightly if I wore short skirts or little dresses. Also, the vein was becoming painful when I exercised. I was really self-conscious that people would notice it. The procedure was really quick, straightforward and affordable. I was in an out the same afternoon. The end result is brilliant! I can now confidently wear dresses and shorts without worrying. It’s the best thing I’ve had done.

Before I had my veins treated I experienced a lot of aching and pain in my right leg, particularly if I stood for long periods. A number of very large veins were visible on the outside of my right leg and foot although this was not the main reason for me seeking treatment; it was the aching and the pain. In the initial consultation Mr Gajraj used an ultrascan to show me the faulty veins and thoroughly explained the treatment recommended so I Knew exactly what to expect. On the day, the procedure was carried out with a local anaesthetic and I’m pleased to say there was virtually no pain whatsoever. In fact I experienced slightly more pain the next day but even that was nothing to speak of. Since the treatment, most of the aching and pain has gone and almost all of the large veins have disappeared and I have no hesitation in wearing shorts again. All in all a very successful outcome!

Over a period of time the veins in my leg had become increasingly unsightly and by the end of the day would be itchy and painful… They contributed to me generally feeling less confident about my appearance. I have always loved being outdoors, taking holidays abroad, walking and swimming. In my mind the veins started to worry me and erode my personal confidence. In warm weather I no longer wore shorts and hated wearing a swimsuit. On long flights my leg would ache having to sit for so long. The consultation at the clinic gave me optimism as to how my veins could be treated and the potential results. On the day of the surgery I felt a little anxious but I need not have worried as the team soon put me at ease. The surgery was not painful and I was very well cared for in very relaxing surroundings. Having the veins removed has changed me immensely: I am no longer worried or in pain, I have my confidence back and I enjoy again the freedom of wearing what ever I want. I know if I had not had the surgery done it would only have worsened.
