How to get rid of excess armpit skin & fat bulges? Surgical & non-surgical options are welcome! (Photo)
Doctor Answers 3
Direct skin excision is the only treatment that I think may be of value but would leave an unaesthetic scar and my opinion should be avoided. Until there is a very effective skin tightening device that will help in this area I would avoid surgery. You may find a doctor with an RFAL device willing to try to tighten your skin but I am not sure if it has yet been used in this region. Good luck and best wishes,

Excess arm pit skin- what to do
Thank you for asking about your arm pit skin.
- Based on your photos, surgical excision of the excess skin looks the best treatment.
- Kybella and liposuction are unlikely to help.
- Please see a plastic surgeon for an examination to be sure this is correct.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
Fat Rolls in Armpit -- VASER HI DEF, ThermiRF, Surgery, Kybella
Some of this is genetic and cannot be improved without surgical removal and even then it may not look great. Vaser hi def 4D contouring can be used, thermiRF can be tried, kybella may help tighten the area I suggest a formal consultation. Best, Dr. Emer.
