Axillary Breast Tissue Removal in Athens, Greece
The breast tissue that creates voluptuous, full breasts can extend beyond the normal breast area. Some women have axillary breast tissue, which is a denser, lumpier version that appears beside the breasts, usually near the underarm area. This extra tissue can impact the appearance of the breasts and underarms, which can be aesthetically concerning for many women. Dr. John Anastasatos offers a solution – axillary breast tissue removal in Athens, Greece.
The lumpy axillary breast tissue near the armpits can be uncomfortable and embarrassing for some women. Even though they may be a healthy weight, the roll of fat under the arms can appear when they wear swimsuits as well as strapless or sleeveless clothing. The fat deposits can make it hard to wear certain bras or clothing, and it may even chafe or cause discomfort. Since it is breast tissue, this accessory tissue can respond to hormonal changes, swelling and becoming tender during menstruation and pregnancy.
Axillary breast tissue removal surgery is similar to traditional breast reduction procedures, except not involving the natural breasts. The fatty tissue can be removed from the underarm area and the skin tightened to create the desired, sculpted appearance.
Accessory Breast Tissue Surgery
Axillary or accessory breast tissue that creates lumpy rolls near the armpits can be removed with either liposuction or excision. The method used depends on the amount of fatty tissue that will be removed. Liposuction can be used for removing small fat deposits, only requiring a small incision near the breast tissue to suction the fat away. For larger axillary breast tissue rolls, excision is used. While the incision is larger, it can be carefully hidden to make the scar almost invisible once the area heals.
If you are tired of hiding your armpits under sleeves due to axillary breast tissue or underarm fat, consider the benefits of plastic surgery.
