Sweat Gland Liposuction

Treating Excessive Sweating

In patients with excessive perspiration of the underarms unresponsive to conservative treatments such as topical agents and Botox®, sweat gland liposuction may be an effective long-term solution.*

The Sweat Gland Liposuction Procedure

The underarm area is numbed with a dilute lidocaine (local anesthetic) solution through two tiny stab incisions that do not require sutures.* Special liposuction cannulae are used to scrape the underside of the skin where sweat glands are located.* Normal activities can be resumed within a few days and perspiration should cease almost immediately.*

In some patients, perspiration returns after a few months, however it is typically more of a normal pattern of perspiration.* These patients can be treated with liposuction again or have a single Botox® treatment for more persistent reduction of perspiration.*
