A Minimally Invasive Surgery for Axillary Osmidrosis: Combined Liposuction With Subcutaneous Pruning
Patients with axillary osmidrosis are treated with minimally invasive procedure combined tumescent liposuction with Subcutaneous Pruning. Effectiveness of this modified method in reducing odor is to be determined.

|Official Title:||A Refined Minimally Invasive Procedure for Radical Treatment of Axillary Osmidrosis: Combined Tumescent Liposuction With Subcutaneous Pruning Through a Small Incision|
- To assess the effectiveness of the refined minimally invasive procedure for radical treatment of axillary osmidrosis using patient self-report assessments [ Time Frame: up to 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||February 2012|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||February 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Experimental: minimally invasive surgery
There is only one arm to this study. All patients will receive treatment with the minimally invasive surgery for their axillary bromidrosis
Procedure: minimally invasive surgery
Subcutaneous fat and apocrine sweat glands were removed by suction under tumescent anesthesia,and the remaining tissue and glands, tightly attached to the epidermis-dermis interface, were completely removed with scissors through the initial small incision.
Patients with excessive malodor are recruited. They are surgically treated with minimally invasive procedure combined tumescent liposuction with Subcutaneous Pruning and followed up for 6-24 months to evaluate effectiveness sand side effect.
