“Being a male in my sixties, I had large varicose veins. They were painful and unsightly. My local M.D. recommended I visit the L.A. Vein Center. After a bit of investigation, I made an appointment. The office is very clean and professional. The staff is first rate and guides you though the insurance nightmares. Dr. Lee is very clear and precise and explains any procedure in detail. The follow up appointments are comforting and underline the great work. They even laugh at my stupid jokes. I highly recommend Dr. Lee and her staff.”

About L.A. Vein Center
The Los Angeles Vein Center is a specialized medical office dedicated to the treatment of venous disease and minimally invasive medical and cosmetic procedures. Established by Dr. Larisse K. Lee, it focuses on the most up to date techniques for the treatment of spider veins, varicose veins, leg swelling, and venous leg ulcers. Dr. Lee performs laser liposuction, tumescent liposuction and ambulatory phlebectomy among other procedures to achieve the best minimally invasive surgical results. Be it cosmetic or medical necessity, Dr Lee tailors a plan for each patient in the safety and comfort of her office. The staff at the L.A. Vein Center understands the unique problems facing lipo and vein patients, and they are dedicated to helping patients achieve their goals. This ranges from cosmetic treatment of unsightly veins to medical treatment of symptomatic venous insufficiency. In a comfortable environment, patients can expect a thorough medical evaluation of their vein or cosmetic concerns. Our state of the art facility offers minimally invasive medical and cosmetic procedures without the need for a hospital visit.
Dr. Lee evaluates every patient to determine an individualized plan according to the patient’s needs and objectives. This may range from tumescent liposuction to get rid of problem areas, to microphlebectomy to remove bulging varicose veins. Our services range from cosmetic treatments such as Botox, Juvederm, body contouring, to medical treatment of venous insufficency. We understand that leg aching, swelling, itching, and fatigue is not normal and we strive to help patients eliminate these symptoms that may interfere with their daily life or work. Some people with undiagnosed venous insufficiency also have leg ulcers. Treatment with radiofrequency vein ablation can help heal these open wounds, which may have been intractable for years. At the L.A. Vein Center, we strive for you to look your best and achieve relief of your symptoms, so you can live your active life to the fullest. Patient safety and results are the most important factors in Dr. Lee’s vein and cosmetic practice.

Your perserverance is inspiring, as you strive to maintain your patient’s overall well-being; you exhaust every possibility. Your immediate response and intervention saved my foot and allowed for my complete and healthy recovery. I know for a fact that this would not have been possible under another surgeon’s care.
