Beating That Bra Bulge – Why Armpit Fat Removal Is on The Rise

Everyone has something he or she wants to change. However, for an increasing number of women, their bra bulges are becoming a serious concern. The fat between the bra and armpit – the bra bulge – can spoil the appearance of clothing. It can also make women feel self-conscious when wearing tank tops or swimwear. This is why more cosmetic surgeons are receiving inquiries from women in their 20s, 30s, and 40s about suitable treatments. So, how can you beat bra bulge? The answer lies in armpit fat removal via liposuction. 

Isn’t A Well-Fitting Bra the Answer?

Some people think a well-fitting bra can minimize the appearance of armpit fat. However, this doesn’t always work. Excess weight can be the cause of some bra bulges. Sometimes, though, the cause lies elsewhere. Poor muscle tone can cause sagging, or accessory breast tissue may start to grow in the armpit area. Whatever the cause, because of the nature of fat in this area, there is often an overspill of fat. No bra can disguise this problem.


How Does the Removal of Armpit Fat Work?

You can remove armpit fat in several ways. Some cosmetic surgeons promote treatments, such as Kybella or CoolSculpting, as a solution. However, many regard arm liposuction to be the best option. 

Liposuction is the best-known and oldest option for fat reduction. It involves making small incisions in the armpit area before a surgeon inserts a cannula to remove fat cells. Once the surgeon has removed the excess fat, he or she, then, closes the incisions with stitches. A great advantage of armpit lipo is that a surgeon can perform it under a local anesthetic. Therefore, the patient can go home the same day and will make a speedier recovery.

The other two options, CoolSculpting and Kybella, are less effective. CoolSculpting involves chilling fat cells to kill them. The procedure only removes around a fifth of the bulge’s fullness. Also, several treatment sessions are necessary. Kybella is a medicine that a doctor injects into the area to dissolve fat. It requires multiple treatments to show any effect. It’s, therefore, easy to see why liposuction is the favored choice of most women.
