There are three methods to therapy excessive sweating:
- Surgical removal of the skin bearing the sweat glands
- Botox treatment to decrease sweat secretion
- Underarm sweat gland suction
The sweat gland suction from the arm pits is particularly effective and permanent. For this reason, we most often apply this method in our clinic at Wittenbergplatz. The procedure consists of retrodermal curettage and axillary liposuction of the sweat glands which are always directly under the skin, using three different special cannulas.
When treatment begins we will give you a tablet for sedation, so you will experience the entire procedure in a state of relaxation. The operation is carried out with a special form of local anesthesia called tumescence anesthesia (which is also applied in liposuction). The operation begins as soon as the drugs contained in the local anesthetic solution begin to act. The arm pits is treated from two directions. For each side, we need a suction time of 20 minutes. You will stay at maximum for merely one and half to two hours with us, including anesthesia, preparation and aftercare. Treatment is carried out by Prof. Frank W. Peter in person. The operation is ambulatory.
Please inquire at our clinic in Berlin for more information on the subject of axillary hyperhidrosis.
