Sweating | Oakville Plastic Surgery – Dr. Nancy de Kleer



Sweating is an important and natural function of elimination and temperature control in the body. When this natural process functions abnormally in the form of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), it can damage self-image and self-confidence, thereby negatively impacting social, professional and intimate relationships.


Visible Effects

Hyperhidrosis commonly occurs in the underarms, palms of the hands and soles of the feet, and in some cases the entire body.

An estimated 2%-3% of North Americans suffer from excessive sweating of the underarms or of the palms and soles of the feet.


Underlying Causes

There are two categories of hyperhidrosis: primary and secondary. Primary hyperhidrosis generally affects a specific acute area. There is no known cause, but some of its triggers include emotional stress, hot climates, spicy foods and alcohol. Secondary hyperhidrosis affects the entire body and is associated with underlying causes such as menopause, thyroid conditions, nervous system disorders and certain medications.


Oakville Plastic Surgery is dedicated to providing safe and effective solutions for your sweating concerns. A thorough consultation will assess the appropriate treatment best suited to your unique condition.
