Armpit Surgery

There are a few different types of surgeries that can be performed in the underarms to either remove or incapacitate (damage so they don’t work anymore) the sweat glands to treat excessive underarm sweating.

These “local” surgeries should be discussed with your dermatologist or plastic surgeon and should only be tried after other less invasive treatments, like antiperspirants, injections, and miraDry, have been tried. Surgery is usually performed in the doctor’s office under local anesthesia and there will be soreness and swelling afterwards. Patients have to limit their activities (like sports) for a few days, at least. If your sweating isn’t reduced enough by the surgery (some sweat glands can be missed) injections, antiperspirants, or miraDry can be used to improve the results. All surgeries have potential bad results – like infection and scarring - and your doctor will discuss these with you and your parents.
