Excessive Ampit Sweating Success Stories & Patient Testimonials

Getting my axillary procedure for armpit sweating made a radical change in my life. I was miserable before getting the procedure and was sweating buckets, ruining cloths, had embarrassing wet spots constantly, and had a very limited wardrobe and I had to plan my life around my sweating. My sweating controlled my life. Now I can wear almost anything, I never buy antiperspirant anymore and I used to bath in the stuff, I just use a little deodorant. I can wear tight fitting shirts without the fear of sweating.

Dr. Pnini and his staff were very nice and attentive to my every question and concern. It was very expensive for a man such as myself but I am so glad I had it done, it was worth every penny and more!

"It’s been about nine months since I had my procedure done and I cannot believe that my underarms are still odor and sweat free. Having this procedure done has allowed me to do the things I love in life. I am no longer the party pooper, the one who never wants to do anything because of my once embarrassing problem. I remember I use to have really bad anxiety when I was around people because I was afraid they would notice my underarm odor. There are no words that can explain how grateful I am to Dr. Pnini, Darlene and the rest of the staff. You guys have really changed my life. "

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

My name is James and I’m from Boston, MA.  Five months ago, I underwent the retrodermal curettage procedure for axillary (underarm) sweating by Dr. Pnini.  The decision and procedure has been an absolute life changer.  I cannot emphasize that point enough.  Prior to the procedure I would continuously sweat from my underarms.  It did not matter if it was “hot” or “cold” out.  It could be in the dead of winter, I would be freezing and still my underarms would sweat.  My underarms were always “wet” from sweat.  It was pretty deliberating.  The underarms would sweat in my sleep and I would wake up with “wet” underarms.  I’ve ruined countless shirts.  Since the surgery, there is no need for undershirts or deodorant.  To not be plagued by excessive sweating is surreal.  There is no need for deodorant / antiperspirant or undershirts.  I used to change my tops twice a day, now, there is no need for it.  I actually joke with my fiancé because, like everyone else, she still uses deodorant.  It’s weird because, at times I actually miss the feeling or routine of putting on deodorant (we are all conditioned more than we know).  So I went out and bought deodorant made by Gucci to wear when I miss not putting anything on.  The feeling of actually having permanent dry underarms is literally immeasurable.  For those of us plagued with hyperhidrosis; it will change your life.  I almost want to run around and say look, feel, dry armpits everyone.  It was one of the best decisions I’ve made and it’s something I should of done sooner.  I guess one would say that I am satisfied with the results.  Buyer beware, because not all physicians or procedures are equal.  I called others who performed this procedure and others have told me that they have a repeat / touch-up rate of around 15-25%, but they offer a discount if it is needed down the road.  The other doctor’s said that initially there is no sweating for the first 3-4 months then there is a gradual return to slight sweating.  The results I have achieved with Dr. Pnini have been constant.  He told me that he has never had to perform a repeat procedure.  I purposely waited over 6 months after the procedure before I would write a recommendation.  I am so thrilled that he is as good as advertised.  No other performing physician has an extensive referral list as Dr. Pnini.  The surgery and healing process was pretty much non-eventful.  I was asleep and I was told it lasted  just slightly over an hour.  Dr. Pnini is intelligent, skilled, attentive, funny, kind, and caring.  

Dr. Pnini’s staff, Darlene and her sister Yvonne, are beyond great.  Fortunately, my insurance provided coverage for this procedure but they didn’t want to pay for it.  They used every trick and angle in the book to keep from paying even after it was already deemed medically necessary and approved.  Darlene fought with me hand-in-hand.  The entire procedure took well over 3 months.  Since I was flying in specifically for the procedure, Darlene helped me secure a hotel room and even acted as my chaperone for the surgery.  She picked me up the morning of the surgery and brought me back to the hotel after.  She arrived the next morning and brought me to the follow up appointment and to the airport.  

Dr. Pnini, Darlene, and her sister Yvonne have stayed in contact with me throughout the recovery period as well.  Their attention, dedication, and compassion is genuine.

I highly recommend Dr. Pnini and his staff.  They are outstanding.
