New York plastic surgeon Dr. Sharon Giese says it's possible -- and The Real Housewives of New York star Ramona Singer claims that she's the supporting evidence.
For the three percent of the population who experience the excessive sweating known as hyperhidrosis, pit stains, sweaty palms and drenched clothing are a way of life.
And for the rest of us without the condition, being caught in the soaring summer temperatures as of late can still leave us with uncomfortable stains and odors while out and about or at the office with no shower relief in sight.
"It's so embarrassing, but I used to literally drip with sweat," Singer tells StyleList. "But since I got the treatment, I don't even have to wear deodorant anymore! I'll still sweat a bit if it's super, super hot and I'm out, but it's nothing."
The treatment targets the underarm area with the Lysonix 3000 ultrasound liposuction instrument that removes the cells responsible for churning out body odor and wetness.
According to Dr. Giese, the results are permanent.
"You'll see anywhere from a 65% to 90% reduction in sweat, with most people getting closer to the 90%. There is a very small percentage of the population who is unresponsive to the treatment, who most likely have a strong hereditary gene for excessive sweating," Dr. Giese tells StyleList.
Previously, heavy sweaters have relied on Botox injections to alleviate odor and wetness. But the drawback to the needle is that results are only temporary, and the pricey shots that typically cost around $1500 a session need to be repeated every few months to maintain effectiveness.
But the permanent solution isn't cheap either; Dr. Giese charges $4500 for the liposuction treatment.
Worth it? For a sweat-free life, it could even be a bargain.
