have worsening on the right lower extremity varicose veins. Now with symptoms. She was ashamed of wearing shorts due to the unsightly appearance of the varicose veins.

She underwent ablation of the GSV and at the same sitting and ambulatory phlebectomy of the varicosities. Two months later her symptoms had completely resolved and the results can be appreciated in the images below.
