What is Hyperhidrosis Surgery?

Hyperhidrosis is an excessive sweating condition that affects the areas of the body where sweat glands can be found. There are 2 types of sweat glands, eccrine, and apocrine glands. Apocrine glands are the ones that produce sweat that could cause odor and is often found on the underarms.

Hyperhidrosis surgery is a treatment performed to remove or destroy the sweat glands, mainly apocrine glands, to permanently help in the reduction of hyperhidrosis and thus helps to solve the problem of sweating with no recurrence.

How It Works

At our affiliated clinic, there are 3 surgical methods available for treating hyperhidrosis.

· Suction Surgery
The procedure is performed like mini liposuction to scrape out the apocrine sweat glands. This treatment has a higher chance of recurrence than other methods.

· Direct Removal Surgery
Sweat glands will be manually removed by surgical scissors. This procedure would result in almost no recurrence of the underarm odor.

· Axillary Shaping
The procedure removes the majority of the sweat glands in the underarm area, resulting in an immediate reduction in sweat production.
