I'm happy for the UK gang that is getting great treatment for those pesky veins! I'm still debating between surgery and laser.

. Thanks bud really appreciate it! Is this ligation procedure safe then? I'm a bit nervous about someone moving around arteries that carry blood and oxygen to my brain. How to ligation make them dissapear as well? Cheers again!

hi geo,
the ligation is safe as far as i was told
and the last 6 months have been fine, i lift weights run and drink beer, an theres no problem,
it works by removing a section of the artery as low down as poss, were it is first visible,
the end is tied off stitched,the reemaining artey that used to bulge then dies off and constricts,shrinks.
the blood that used to go to the bulgeing artery is then dispersed safley,into other arteries that are non visible, thats the good bit,nomore worms,
but seriously its fine mate,
i to was a little nervous but its ok,
feels a little strange with his fingers in your head, but its worth it ,hope this helps,

Hi Dave,
I am also bald and my biggest concern is the scars and how long it takes to heal...so when I go back to work I want to know how much attention the scars are going to attract. Interested to get your feedback any update on the healing process.
Thanks!

Hello mxwell,
I see that you posted from New York, NY. Have you found a doctor in the area that treats this condition through ligation and what is the contact infomation?

The wiggly worms have left the building!!!!! Still a bit sore 24hrs on but thats the price you pay for vanity! I have 4 incisions about 25 mm long 3 on one side and one on the other, took about an hour and a half and only felt pain when the local wore off and then it's like you've been bottled round the head!! Both branches were ligated but one had a few feeds in and out so needed more ties, but what a difference even though the area is still quite swollen!! No adverse affects felt or seen yet but I'll keep you all updated as I heal! Good luck!

. Sounds good! Putting the pain aside bet you feel great! Were your temple veins arteries? When they get ligated do they get removed or just moved to an area where they can't be seen? I'd be a bit worried if they removed them? I'd be worried about blood flow to my head and brain damage (I am generally a worrier anyway) haha

They are branches of the temporal artery,they only feed your scalp really but the redundant systems cope no problem. The branch is cut and stitched and the remaining bit is left in to shrink and eventually be absorbed back into the body. This does not feed any major organs or systems as all of that is in your neck running up in your skull, hence why your skull is hard!! So I am happy so far and not worried about brain damage or necrosis!!! Lol

. Oh I see haha well I think mine might be the superficial artery altho I'm not 100 percent sure. It pulsates, visibly as well. I weight train so I reckon it might of been brought on by straining and temporary high blood pressure. I don't know if I stop that it might go away but I seriously don't want to stop training why should I. Mine run from the side of my ear up along my temple.

Geo you have the same problem I had with a fat pulsating snake from ear to forehead. It was probably brought on through your training which causes increased heat and pressure. Mine were caused by prolonged heat while away and didn't go away so I doubt yours would even if you stopped training. You would have to speak to the surgeon to see if you were to have the op,would your training cause another branch to get bigger.

I had temporal artery branches on my temples mate, you have veins that are probably in a V that run from your nose to your scalp.I don't know anything about a procedure for this,best get in touch with a vascular surgeon who can advise you on a treatment :-)

. Ah I see I imagine mine must be a branch of an artery then as you say. I've looked at other blokes in my gym who are massive and lift 100 times more weight than me and there's not a single vein showing? They get a lot bigger when I'm training, when I'm normal the right one shows through but not as much, its been like this for a while I think. I suppose we must be the unlucky minority? At least you got this problem sorted then? I'm only 18, 1000 quid dosnt come easy haha so you say it was fine, wasn't dangerous and their healing well then? I just thought 'hmm pumping veins In my temples maybe something I shouldn't mess with' how are the temples at the moment?
