Can Breast Liposuction Address Excess Armpit Fat from the Breast Bulge?

by | Published on Mar 8, 2017 | Breast Liposuction

Breast liposuction helps women who want smaller, shapelier breasts. The best candidates for this treatment are women with excessive fat tissue buildup in the breasts. Overly large breast affects physical appearance and also cause physical discomfort. In NYC plastic surgery practices, the procedure is performed using the minimally-invasive FDA-approved Smartlipo Triplex technique. This safe and effective outpatient procedure involves liquefying the unwanted fat so that it can be easily suctioned off and tightening the skin. The outcome is smaller, natural-looking, attractive breasts.

Many candidates also have excess armpit fat due to the breast bulge and want to know if this can be treated along with breast lipolysis. Breast tissue often migrates to the armpit and back, causing the breasts to spill out of the bra. It can make you look awkward in your clothes, especially sleeveless dresses.

According to expert surgeons, a personalized approach to the treatment can help resolve the condition effectively in most cases. The correction of these pre-axillary folds depends upon the cause of the problem which could vary among individuals. Liposuction would usually help when the fatty tissue is present in the pre axillary region – the area directly beneath the joint where the arm connects to the shoulder. This treatment can be performed as an outpatient procedure. For it to be effective, the skin must be of good quality with no stretch marks.

As women age, the tissues around the outside of the chest from the lateral breast to the back develop laxity. Often times, this is a combination of breast tissue and fatty tissue. Liposuction would be effective if this is predominantly fatty tissue as you can’t suction out breast tissue. More aggressive procedures are usually necessary when breast tissue is encountered in this area. In certain cases, a combination of liposuction and resection of skin will need to be carried out to completely address the condition.

A qualified liposuction surgeon will evaluate discuss your specific concerns and goals and provide a personalized solution.
