Axillary hyperhidrosis: surgical cure with aesthetic scars.

Abstract

By using a technique in which the hair-bearing skin of the axilla is undermined through three small incisions the eccrine glands can be methodically removed. The resulting scarring is minimal and is aesthetically acceptable. In a series of 25 patients (50 axillae) 23 were totally cured of their hyperhidrosis. The remaining 2 patients were sufficiently improved not to require any further treatment. The technique may be undertaken under either local or general anaesthesia.
