Surgical treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis by suction-curettage of sweat glands.

Rezende RM, Luz FB - An Bras Dermatol (2014 Nov-Dec)

Bottom Line: Suction curettage is a dermatologic surgery technique for the treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis, which is becoming more popular.Suction-curettage of sweat glands is a minimally invasive surgical technique that is easy to perform, safe, has high rates of success and relatively few side-effects.It is generally well tolerated by patients and requires shorter time away from daily activities, when compared with other surgical modalities.
