Hyperhidrosis Procedure & Recovery & Effectiveness
Affordable Hyperhidrosis treatment in India is performed using video assisted Thoracopscopic surgery. In this system, the doctor makes a small amount of incision in the underarm area. Using a scope and a camera, the doctors can isolate the sympathetic nerve with microscopic precision. The cut is made on the sympathetic nerve, depending on the level of Hyperhidrosis you have.
Compensatory sweating can occur for some patients after six weeks. Doctors are not aware of the exact reason, but it is linked too much cuts made too high on the sympathetic nerve.
Why Opting Hyperhidrosis Procedure is necessary?
No way have we needed some amount of sweating to control our body temperature. The water evaporating from the skin is known to cool the body. People who are victims of Hyperhidrosis produce more sweat than normal, as they are particularly sensitive to this form of signal. It seems to flow from your ancestors, but one is not aware of much more that causes it.
The general sweating could also be a form of hormonal condition, cancer, anxiety or infection that requires some form of treatment. To be sure of it you need to consult a doctor. In most cases than not, excessive amount of sweating is not dangerous, but an embarrassment for sure. The satisfaction levels of the patients are on the higher side after the surgery.

There are two types of hyperhidrosis:
- Primary hyperhidrosis: often an inherited disorder, which means a member of your family may have had it.
- Secondary hyperhidrosis: caused by a condition, medications or behavior (like chronic alcoholism).
There are several places on the body that people experience hyperhidrosis:
- Palmar hyperhidrosis—excessive sweating of the hands
- Axillary hyperhidrosis—excessive underarm sweating
- Pedal Hyperhidrosis—excessive feet sweating. Sweating on the hands can be linked to feet sweating.
- Facial Hyperhidrosis/Blushing—flushing and sweating of the face
If your hyperhidrosis is caused by a family genetic predisposition, then it is unlikely that you will outgrow hyperhidrosis. The good news is there are many forms of treatment that you can explore with the doctors at Cosmetic and Obeisty Surgery Hospital India.
Most of the time, by listening to a patient’s history, our doctors can diagnose hyperhidrosis. First, before they can recommend any treatments, they must rule out any other possibilities that could be causing the symptoms. Once those are ruled out, our doctors can also perform other tests, including a starch iodine test and a test using a device called a vapometer to determine how much sweat the different parts of your body makes.
We understand how much hyperhidrosis can affect your quality of life. Our doctors take treating hyperhidrosis very seriously, but always want to proceed in the safest manner possible when considering all treatments available. If your hyperhidrosis is moderate, many of these conservative treatments can help. After determining that you have primary hyperhidrosis, you doctor will probably recommend conservative treatments first, before exploring surgery. Those conservative treatments include:
- Oral Medications
- Topical Medications
- Botulinum Toxin
- Microwave Thermolysis
Before the procedure, your doctor will numb the underarm area. Then your underarm skin is lifted into the system and microwave energy is directed to the sweat glands. The procedure typically takes an hour and involves no incisions or cuts; you should not feel any discomfort. After two treatments in our center, 95% of patients report a significant reduction in underarm sweat. You should be able to return to normal activities or work right away, and you can typically resume exercise within several days.
If you have tried conservative treatments for hyperhidrosis and not had the level of success you had hoped for, your doctors may recommend surgical treatment, known as a sympathectomy or sympathotomy. A sympathectomy is removal of the sympathetic nerve; our doctors at Johns Hopkins prefer to cut the nerve instead of removing it. That is why we refer to the surgery as a sympathotomy.
If you have not had your sweating for a long time, (arms, hands and feet), you will not be a surgical candidate for a sympathotomy. If you have truncal hyperhidrosis (sweating on your body or groin), you may also not be a good candidate for surgery.
For treatment of hyperhidrosis, surgeons used to have to open the entire chest to locate and cut the sympathetic nerve, the nerve that controls the sweating reaction in people. Now we have VATS, which stands for Video Assisted Thoracic Surgery. Your surgeon makes a small incision in your underarm and using a small camera and light, is able to locate the sympathetic nerve and make the appropriate cuts. The increased magnified visualization of the sympathetic nerve offered by VATS eliminates the need to open up people’s chest.
VATS gives our surgeons an amazing amount of precision, so they can localize the exact place on the nerve where the cut should be made.
Surgeons also used to clip nerve with the idea that clip removal would make the surgery reversible: what they now know is that clipping is irreversible. To date, the best evidence suggests that clipping and cutting the nerve are fairly interchangeable although larger studies are needed to evaluate the two techniques head-to-head.
The surgery is outpatient, which means you leave the hospital on the same day.
Patients are typically satisfied following their surgeries, with specific levels depending on where they first experienced hyperhidrosis. Patients undergoing surgery to treat sweating on their hands are usually the most pleased with results, with over 90% reporting satisfaction; those with excessive sweating in the underarm area or on their faces report a 70 to 80% satisfaction rate.
Compensatory sweating occurs when the original hyperhidrosis is no longer localized to the area where it first occurred. Often it can travel to the trunk or body or back of legs or knees and can occur after surgery. It doesn’t always occur right away; it can take about 6 weeks before we see this and doctors still don’t know why. What they do know is that the higher on the sympathetic nerve they have to cut, the more likely that compensatory sweating may happen, which is why now surgeons avoid cutting above rib 3.
There is a seasonal component with compensatory sweating. Our doctors at Cosmetic and Obesity Surgery Hospital India have noticed that patients get better in the winter, but experience more sweating in the summer.
When patients do suffer with compensatory sweating there are medications that are able to help.
Some doctors have tried experimenting with nerve grafts to try to reconnect the cuts that were originally made in the sympathetic nerve. However, none of these procedures seems to be successful. Therefore, it is important to understand that a sympathotomy is a permanent procedure and does carry risks.
