varicose vein surgery with compression stocking

After a patient undergoes varicose vein surgery, the surgeon usually requires the patient to wear compression stockings for 3 to 6 months because they assist in the post-operative recovery by.

1. Compress the wound and prevent bleeding from the debridement site and incision. This is because the nature of the surgery is to remove some of the veins, and without compression, bleeding, hematomas and even recurrence can occur.

2. Relief of swelling. The pressure exerted by varicose veins stockings on the lower extremities can help the return of blood to the veins, thus relieving the swelling of the lower extremities.
