What is side breast tissue removal?

Women often find bulging side breast tissue unsightly in sleeveless clothing. This excess fat or breast tissue is often hereditary and may not respond at all to changes in diet or exercise. Furthermore, the extra breast tissue can also cause soreness.

Depending on the severity of accessory breast tissue, Dr. Lee in Los Angeles can perform liposuction or an excision to help reshape the axillary or armpit contour. She will make minimal incisions that are well-hidden within the natural folds of the armpit.

Thanks to Dr. Lee’s conservative and nuanced approach, you can expect an expedited and straightforward recovery process. You will typically return to normal activities such as work and school within about one week, while holding off on strenuous exercise for about 3-4 weeks post procedure.
