What should I know about hyperhidrosis surgery?

What happens during hyperhidrosis surgery, and how complex is the procedure? WIll I be able to leave the hospital the same day I have the operation?

Hyperhidrosis is a difficult condition to treat.  There are a large number of non-surgical treatments that should be tried first-- surgery is a last resort.  Sympathectomy can be effective, but oftentimes it leads to hyperhidrosis on other parts of the body.  I have my own procedure for hyperhidrosis of the armpits which is performed on an out-patient basis and takes about one hour.  It is simple, straight-forward and truly effective.  Read more about hyperhidrosis on my website:  https://www.gynecomastianewyork.com/hyperhidrosis_1.asp
