Axillary Breast Tissue Removal
When most people think of breasts, they envision the tissue on the front of the chest. While that is the normal location, sometimes the breast tissue can develop outside of the normal breast area. Known as axillary breast tissue, it is often found near your armpits. It can bulge over the top of a bra or strapless dress and is generally unappealing to most people. Dr. Azouz of Azouz Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery can perform axillary breast tissue removal and restore the appearance of the underarm area.
Benefits of Axillary Breast Tissue Removal
The lumpy appearance of axillary breast tissue can affect your self-confidence and change the type of clothing you wear. Covering up the area with loose-fitting clothing may disguise the area, but it also limits your self-expression and style. Removing the dense tissue offers multiple benefits, including:
- Recontouring the underarm area
- Eliminating underarm swelling and pain associated with menstrual cycles
- Increasing arm mobility
- Reducing irritation caused by clothing rubbing the tissue
- Improving appearance under clothing
There are a few options for axillary breast tissue treatment, and the type of removal will depend on the amount of tissue that is present.
Options for Axillary Breast Tissue Removal in Dallas, TX
Removal of axillary breast tissue is performed by liposuction or excision. Both are straightforward procedures with immediate benefits, although some swelling is to be expected. Full results are seen in a few weeks.
Liposuction is the preferred choice for small to moderate amounts of tissue. Dr. Azouz is an expert in liposuction and fat transfer, and his advanced techniques provide exceptional results. Small, hidden incisions allow a small cannula to be inserted, and the fatty tissue is removed through a tube. For larger amounts of tissue, excision is the preferred method. The excess tissue is surgically removed through an incision, which is stitched closed after the procedure. The incisions are only as large as necessary to remove the tissue and are hidden as much as possible.
If you are unhappy with excess tissue beneath your armpits, contact Azouz Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery today to find out if axillary breast tissue removal is the solution for your concerns.
