Removing a angel wing

The excess tissue under your arm can well be removed by excision.  Because there is extra skin a scar is needed, this is not a liposuction situation.

Correcting Armpit "Fatty Lump"

You could get an EXCELLENT result by having this area removed surgically. Although there will be a scar in this location all the overhang will be gone. This is typically seen after large weight loss and can be readily corrected.
