Axillary Curettage Suction Provides Permanent Reduction of Excessive Sweat and Smells
New York, NY (Vocus) May 7, 2009 -- Uncontrollable sweating and body odor affects 176 million people and in most cases can be physically, emotionally and financially debilitating. A recent medical breakthrough procedure, Hypo Lipo, (Axillary Curettage Suction) provides permanent reduction in excessive sweating and or body odor. Performed NY based plastic surgeon; Dr. Elliot Jacobs, Hypo Lipo (ACS) effectively treats the cause, not the symptom.
Noted by Castle Connolly and New York magazine as one of New York's best doctors, Dr. Jacobs has appeared internationally in the media for his leading edge work in plastic and reconstructive surgery.
Hypo Lipo removes some of the sweat (apocrine) glands under the armpit, resulting in a permanent reduction of excessive sweating and or body odor. Dr. Jacobs utilizes a cannula (thin metal tube) with a spiral shaped sharp tip to simultaneously cut and pull (similar to a cheese knife) the tissue away. This enables Dr. Jacobs to make a smaller incision (less than 3 millimeters long), resulting in less scarring and or crinkling of the skin.
Hyperhidrosis sufferers tend to experience more frequent and uncomfortable bouts of sweating and or body odor especially in warmer temperatures and during stressful personal and professional conditions. They also tend to avoid physical contact situations like shaking hands and athletics.
According to Dr. Jacobs, "Hypo Lipo provides a permanent healthy solution for excessive sweating and body odor." "Compared to other options including Botox (which is soon to carry FDA mandated warning labels) chloride-based deodorants and Sympathectamy surgery, Hypo Lipo permanently regulates as opposed to temporarily or permanently stops excessive sweating", says Dr. Jacobs. He adds, "After Hypo Lipo, the person begins to sweat normally without excessive odor helping to restore balance to their physical, emotional and financial well being"
Hypo Lipo (ACS) takes less than one hour, costs about $3500.00 and in some cases may be covered by insurance.
