Angelina Jolie is famous for her thin appearance with protruding veins on her body, but should those veins concern her? A vascular surgeon spoke to Hollywood Life about the issue.
Angelina Jolie has a thin figure with bulging veins on her arms and legs, but is it something she should keep an eye on?
‘The large vein on her forearm is the Accessory cephalic vein,’ vascular surgeon, Dr. Larisse K stated.
‘Angelina is a physically thin woman, so that’s why you’re seeing those veins protrude the way they are on her hands and arms. Being that she is a thinner build when she flexes her muscles, that’s when those veins are more pronounced, and you can see them more. The vein that you’re seeing on her leg is the great saphenous vein. It starts at the groin and goes down to the ankle. I don’t see anything that would cause concerns with Angelina.’
Dr. Lee also shared what kind of veins would be dangerous.
‘If her veins were spider-like or if they were bigger bulging veins, then she would need to have those treated, but we typically only see that in larger people and older individuals,’ she continued to say.
‘For what she is showing, it’s not symptomatic. She’s just a vascular woman.’
Angelina and her fit body recently made headlines when she graced the November 2017 cover of Harper’s Bazaar. Angie has been keeping herself busy since her split from Brad Pitt, and she continues to prove everyone that she’s dedicated to raising her children and also remaining active in her charitable contributions.
