Axiiallry Hyperhidrosis - Liposuction Curettage - Is It a Safe Procedure ?


Researchers at the Department of Dermatology and Allergology, Ruhr University Bochum, Bochum, Germany investigated changes in skin blood flow using a laser Doppler scan in patients who had liposuction curettage for hyperhidrosis. This was done in 11 patients at 24 hours, 7 days and 1 month after liposuction curettage for axillary hyperhidrosis. The lead author of the study, Dr. Bechara reported that axillary liposuction curettage causes a slight reduction in axillary skin blood flow following the procedure but that this had no clinical significance and was not related to surgical outcome post liposuction.

Dr. Karamanoukian’s comment – This study is important in that it shows that this procedure does not devascularize the skin. We have performed axillary liposuction curettage at the Center for Excessive Sweating and it works very nicely in eliminating axillary hyperhidrosis without any problems with the skin.
