Surgical treatment of hyperhidrosis

It is perfectly normal for our bodies to sweat as we engage in physical activity, experience anxiety-inducing situations, or even simply just go about our daily lives. However, some individuals experience an excessive amount of perception that may make them feel uncomfortable.

Hyperhidrosis is characterized as excessive perspiration, which can either be localized to a specific area of the body or occur all over. For hyperhidrosis treatment the clinic offers botox injections, which is really an effective method for solving this problem.

In addition, axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating that occurs in the armpit region of the body) may be cured surgically as well. The procedure for curing axillary hyperhidrosis involves a process much like liposuction, which is used for the removal of excess fat in areas such as the abdomen or hips. The difference is that with hyperhidrosis liposuction, the cannula opening is directed toward the surface of the skin where the apocrine and eccrine glands are located. Thus almost a third of the sweat glands in a concentrated area are removed.

This axillary liposuction is a performed under intravenuous anesthesia and takes from 30 minutes to one hour. Usually only two small incisions are made under each arm so scars are minimal and barely visible. Patients are discharged from the clinic after 1-2 hours after the procedure and can resume normal physical routine the next day. Some patients experience skin irritation which disappears over time; numbness in underarm areas can last for several weeks.

It is a safe, minimally invasive method of axillary hyperhidrosis treatment. Permanent results of this procedure show a very high success rate (can reduce sweating up to 80% or more).
