Minimal recovery time is needed . Generally I recommend that patient refrain from very rigorous exercise for I week. Normal walking is allowed immediately. With occasional leg elevation as you are able for the first couple of days. These recommendations may very between practitioners. Generally a compression stocking is required for a couple of weeks.

Each patient is different and this question can best be answered by your treating physician. Most patients miss little, if any, work due to surgery for problems with the superficial veins of the legs including most varicose vein surgery.

For the current procedures such as microphlebectomy or endovenous thermal ablation you are up and about immediately after the procedure and staying active is advised. Prolonged sitting or standing is not advised.

The recovery period after laser vein closure is only several days and many people can resume normal activities the next day. If microphlebectomies are done at the same time, then the recovery is about 5 to 7 days. If you have ligation and striping, you may require several weeks to recover. I encourage my patients to not sit around and to get back to their normal routine as soon as possible.
