How will my blood circulate out of the leg after I have my veins injected, ablated or stripped?

The veins that are injected, ablated or stripped are always superficial veins that have been diagnosed as insufficient and diseased. The legs have otherwise multiple veins and the main path of blood circulation out of the leg is through the deep veins. The removal of superficial veins from the leg will not affect the blood circulation of the leg as the deeper veins will take over.
