Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 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 ]

Estimated Enrollment: 30
Study Start Date: February 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: February 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
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.

Detailed Description:

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.
