We have developed a subcutaneous tissue shaver for the radical treatment of hircismus and hyperhidrosis. With this shaver the sweat glands can be removed from the undersurface of the axillary skin through a small incision. We report 3,000 cases of hircismus and hyperhidrosis treated by our method. The postoperative scar has been minimal, healing has been quick, and good results were achieved by this method.
