Dealing with The Bra Bulge? – Armpit Liposuction Is the Answer

If you’ve noticed a bulge around your bra, you aren’t alone. But what is causing that lumpiness? In many cases, it’s fat you can have removed by armpit liposuction. However, in some cases, it can also include loose skin and extra breast tissue. In those cases, you may need skin excision, too. There are some cosmetic surgeons who claim to offer noninvasive treatments to remove your bra bulge. However, these won’t have such dramatic results. If you’re determined to beat that bulge, you need a skilled surgeon to offer you the right procedure.

The Bra Bulge Dilemma

Many women have a bra bulge problem. While the standard response is to exercise more and eat a healthier diet, this often fails to work. This is because targeting any specific area of the body through natural methods is virtually impossible. 

Unfortunately, it’s very hard to hide a bra bulge. If you wear sleeveless tops or tight-fitting shirts, it’s all too easy to see. This leads to low self-esteem, and this can cause ongoing distress. It’s no surprise, then, that so many women opt for cosmetic procedures to eliminate their problems. 

Why Do I Have A Bra Bulge?

Excess weight is a common cause of bra bulge. However, that isn’t always the case. Sometimes, armpit fat isn’t to blame. The problem could be poor tone in the muscles that results in sagging. If you’ve lost a lot of weight, it could be an excess skin problem. In some women, accessory breast tissue grows in the area of the armpit on the milk lines. Whatever the cause of your problem, a skilled surgeon can offer you the right procedure to resolve your issues.

Armpit Liposuction – A Perfect Solution

Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure. It breaks up resistant fat pockets. Then, it removes them via suction. Liposuction is ideal for contouring parts of the body you can’t tone through exercise and diet. The bra bulge area is ideal for this type of treatment. This treatment is also suitable for removing accessory breast tissue. 

A surgeon will carry out armpit liposuction under a local anesthetic. He or she makes a small incision and, then, inserts a cannula to drain out the fat. There are several forms of liposuction that surgeons choose to use. Here at Artistic Lipo and Plastic Surgery, we usually offer tumescent liposuction. This involves injecting a solution into your bra bulge area. This numbs the area and helps to dissolve fat. Then, a surgeon can suction it away easily and remove the fat cells permanently.

What Is the Recovery Like from Liposuction of The Armpits?

The armpit lipo procedure only takes an hour or so. Since we perform it under a local anesthetic, you can return home the same day. Your surgeon will give you useful tools to support your recovery. These include pain meds and a compression garment for you to wear. Over the initial few days, you should limit your physical activity. Make sure you keep the bra bulge area dry and clean. Try to relax and recuperate. There will be some bruising, swelling, and pain, but this shouldn’t be too uncomfortable. Your surgeon will usually give you pain medication to reduce the discomfort. 

After a few days, you can to go back to everyday activities. You must restrict your physical activity, however, and avoid excessive exercise. You must also wear the compression garment until advised by your surgeon. Once your surgeon has given you the go-ahead, you can go back to your normal level of physical activity.

How Much Does It Cost to Have Lipo of The Armpit?

The cost of liposuction varies depending on the surgeon, the location, and the extent of fat that requires removal. It’s important to remember that cost isn’t the only factor to consider. The skill of the surgeon is much more important to weigh up. You want the best possible result. For this, you need to know you’ve selected a highly trained professional. 

Are There Complications and Risks?

Rest assured that when you choose a skilled surgeon, armpit liposuction is a very safe procedure. However, there are always potential complications and risks associated with any kind of surgery. These include:

  • The possibility of allergic reactions to the anesthetic.
  • Infections. 
  • Bleeding.
  • A fat embolism.
  • Heart or kidney problems.
  • A lumpy or wavy appearance because of the uneven removal of fat.
  • Loose skin because of poor elasticity.

These potential complications and risks are the reasons why you need to do your research well. Always make sure you’ve chosen a very experienced and skilled plastic surgeon you can rely on. Make sure to ask for before and after photos of previous patients and take the time to ask relevant questions.
