Surgery Results

Sympathectomy is very effective in treating palmar hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating of the hands. Upon waking up from anesthesia, most patients notice having dry and warm hands. Many patients who suffer from excessive hand and feet sweating also notice some improvement in the sweating of their feet. Palpitation and trembling also improve after sympathectomy.

The results for underarm sweating are also very good. Patients notice a major improvement in the excessive perspiration of their underarm. Facial sweating also responds very well to sympathectomy. In general, patients who suffer from facial blushing also notice a significant reduction in their facial blushing.

After surgery, patients regain their confidence. Patients with hyperhidrosis regain their confidence faster than patients with facial blushing. It takes the mind some time to get used to and fully realize that one no longer suffers from hyperhidrosis or facial blushing. Gradually these people start engaging in activities, which they never did before. Dating, socializing, shaking hands, and even public speaking can improve tremendously after surgery. However full psychological improvement may take a few months after surgery.
