Kim is also the mom to Brielle, 22, Ariana, 17, Kroy, seven, and Kade, six. 

Taking to Snapchat, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star was seen with a gel squeezed onto her leg while her doctor used a machine to roll it on top of the veins. 

At one point her leg was covered by a blanket amid the procedure.  

And it’s not the first time Kim has spoken about her vein, appearing on The Doctors with Brielle for a simple examination.

After suffering from a stroke whilst competing on Dancing With The Stars in 2015, doctors found that she was born with a small hole in her heart. 

And according to varicose vein specialist Dr Amiel Moshfegh, he warned her back in 2016 that the medication to treat the vein could ’cause a recurrent mini-stroke’ and affect the hole in her heart. 

Kim concurred at the time and said she’d just try to exercise more and wear compression stockings after the doctor told her that in her case, her vein was not a health hazard but removing it was just a cosmetic decision on her behalf. 

It is not known if the reality star got clearance from her doctor before treating the vein on Monday. 

Back in 2016: Kim was previously told not to remove the vein as it wasn't affecting her but was more a a cosmetic inconvenience
