Facial Blushing Cure – Stop facial blushing with ETS in Melbourne

Facial blushing involves uncontrollable heat surges to the face and often the upper chest, and affects many individuals throughout Australia and beyond. Excessive facial blushing and sweating may be something that occurs when attention is drawn to the sufferer, leaving them feeling stressed and embarrassed, and can happen on a daily basis with no means of control.

It is the over-activity of involuntary nerves that cause the face to blush, as the nerves control the diameter of the blood vessels, and when over-stimulated, the vessels colour the skin red.

Frequently Asked Questions

How successful is ETS surgery for blushing?
ETS (endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy) surgery is a treatment option for people with severe facial blushing that has not responded to other treatments. The surgery involves cutting or clamping the sympathetic nerves that control the blood vessels in the face to reduce the amount of blood flow to the area and reduce blushing. While ETS surgery can be effective in reducing blushing, there are potential risks and complications associated with the procedure, such as compensatory sweating, nerve damage, and Horner’s syndrome. The success rate of ETS surgery for blushing varies depending on the individual case, and it’s important to carefully consider the risks and benefits before undergoing the procedure.
Individuals who experience blushing may have certain triggers that increase their likelihood of blushing. For instance, individuals with conditions like rosacea or going through menopause may benefit from avoiding prolonged exposure to sunlight, spicy foods, and caffeine.
Recovery time from ETS (endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy) surgery varies depending on the individual and the extent of the procedure. Most patients are able to go home the same day as the surgery and return to work or school within a few days to a week, although it may take up to several weeks to fully resume normal activities. Pain and discomfort after surgery are usually mild to moderate and can be managed with medication. It’s important to follow the post-operative instructions provided by the surgeon to ensure proper healing and minimise the risk of complications.
