What about excessive sweating in the buttocks area?
Cases of primary buttocks sweating, where the patient did not previously have the ETS procedure, are rare but are known to occur. The treatment for the primary cases should be conservative ones with lotion, etc. There have been cases where excessive buttocks sweating was improved after the lumbar sympathectomy procedure that was done for plantar sweating (foot sweating). It is still premature to conclude that lumbar sympathectomy will help primary or secondary cases of excessive buttocks sweating. Overweight people have a higher tendency to have isolated buttocks sweating but the same solution should also be applied to them in a way that conservative treatment with lotions, possible oral medications, and special clothing with high absorption power should be attempted. The possibility that sub-dermal laser ablation coupled with suction currettage will be of any help is still too early to tell.
