Axillary Breast Tissue
The exact location and extent of axillary breast tissue may vary. It is most frequently removed with liposuction done at the same time as a breast reduction, but could certainly be performed without a breast reduction and this of course would impact on the cost. The cost depends on many different factors, and it is best to seek a consultation to determine your exact needs.
Breast Tissue under the Arm
Thank you for your question.
Cost for this procedure have many variables. Will this be performed with any type of breast surgery? It may require excision or liposuction of the area. I would need to examine you in person for an examination to give more exact information.
I perform surgeries in an outpatient surgery center (not my office) with board certified anesthesiologists (not nurse anesthetists) so it can range from $2500-4500 depending on exactly what is performed.
Axillary breast tissue,liposuction
Fullness in the arm pit areas are usually due to excessive fat , extension of breast tissue in the axillary areasor both. During breast reduction surgeries I usually perform liposuction of this are without charging extra for the procedure. If patient desired to have improvement in this area without any breast surgery my surgery fees is about $ 800.00 -1,000.00 . Occasionally after augmentation mammoplasty , this fullness become a concern and it isw necessary to address them . In such circumstances I reduce my fees to $ 600.00.
