What is side breast tissue removal?

Women often find the 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 one’s diet or exercise regimens. Furthermore, this extra breast tissue may cause soreness.

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