Outpatient procedures are performed under local anesthesia. Patients are instructed to remain active following their procedure in order to prevent DVT, and walking is highly encouraged. Stockings are provided for patients to wear immediately after their procedure, and are to be worn for two weeks following the procedure.

Patients may experience bruising, soreness, and tugging sensations during the first two weeks after the procedure which resolve with time, scheduled intake of over-the-counter pain medications, and the aid of compression stockings.
