Best Way to Remove Axillary Breast Tissue?

Theaxillary breast tissue in my armpits became noticeable and very tender after a recent pregnancy. After I finish breast feeding, I would like to consider removal of the tissue. What is the best way to do and will I have problems breast feeding after future pregnancies?

Although liposuction may help, probably the best method to treat axillary breast tissue, in my opinion is to undergo resection through an axillary incision. This is commonly performed by plastic surgeons and occasionally by general surgeons.
