excessive underarm sweating or axillary hyperhidrosis

Excessive underarm sweating affects more than 2% of the population. They suffer from excessive sweating which is almost impossible to control and which is not caused by warmth, cold, or any other environmental reasons. This condition often causes difficulties and embarrassment in social and professional life. Conservative methods frequently do not help many patients who can now benefit from the new method of suction-assisted surgery.

sweat gland suction

At the moment the most modern and effective treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis is
retrodermal curettage and suction.

Sweat gland suction is a revolutionary technique adapted and modified from liposuction. On an out-patient basis with only local anaesthesia, the sweat glands are permanently removed in a gentle, non-aggressive manner. The sweat glands and armpits are first softened and anaesthetized with a special solution. After a short period, the sweat glands can then be removed in a manner similar to liposuction. Only small incisions above and under the armpits are required to remove the sweat glands through quick suction. The entire minimally invasive operation takes between 60 and 90 minutes. Patients can go home directly after the procedure. Some can even return to work after leaving the practice, although we recommend taking the rest of the day off. Over 95% of patients report considerably less discomfort and permanent dryness.

Since most patients do not require a preliminary examination before the procedure, only one visit to the practice is usually needed. The entire treatment has become a routine procedure for our medical team. Please leave your telephone number and we can call you back at the time you specify. We will then send you the necessary documents by mail (explanatory materials and a consent form). On the day of the scheduled procedure, usually only a ten-minute pre-diagnostic conversation is required before the operation can begin. The armpit region is bandaged after the procedure and patients need to wear a compression bandage under their normal clothing for only seven days afterwards, allowing a quick return to normal life. In order to prevent infection, antibiotics are prescribed for five days following the operation. Stitches can be removed by any general practitioner within seven to ten days after the procedure. We maintain a twenty-four hour hotline to handle any questions or complications.

This minor operation will change your life. Do not hesitate to contact us by telephone or e-mail for an individual consultation.

This procedure has also been acclaimed by German television and newspapers.
