Definitive, operative treatment of excessive armpit transpiration
Through an incision of one centimetre at most, under local anaesthesia, the skin of the armpits is released from the underlying fat. The sweat glands are scraped from the undersurface of the skin by modified liposculpture. Admission is limited to a few hours. There is some discomfort, but light work can be resumed the next day. The skin wil adhere to the fat layer like a graft.
In both armpits the temporary hardening under the skin disappeared over the course of several months. On the right there is still some light skin retraction without hardening after eight months. On the left recovery is complete.
Age category: 55 - 59 years.
