True or False: Can wearing a bra that is too small cause armpit fat?
Thank you for your excellent question. False, a bra that is too small will not induce the formation of armpit fat. Hope this helps.
Pressure from a garment will not induce fat growth.
Pressure from your brawl will not induce growth of fat in the axillary region. Axillary breast tissue is normal but sometimes can be excessive. Depending on its makeup it may be treated by liposuction alone.
Wearing a bra that's too small will cause fat to be pushed out on the sides but does not cause an increase in the amount of fat stored in the underarm area. If you have an accumulation of fat in the underarm area that makes you self-conscious in sleeveless clothing, liposuction will be a solution for you. In the future, other non-surgical options may be available, e.g. Kybella injection, which is currently FDA-approved for permanent reduction of double-chin fat, MAY be an option if this indication receives FDA approval. Please consult with a board-certified dermatologic surgeon who performs tumescent liposuction to explore whether what you have is fat and is amenable to liposuction.

No, I bra that is too small or fits too tightly will not cause or increase armpit fat. There are several surgical and non-invasive procedures that can improve this area. Please consult with an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
Depending upon where exactly the fat is located it can typically be removed with liposuction or direct excision(removal surgically). It is not caused by wearing garments that are too tight but can be made more apparent with certain tighter fitting garments. Best to see an experienced plastic surgeon for a consultation and recommendation.
False, Armpit fat occurs withe being overweight and possibly having lose skin. Axillary breast tissue may actually be the culprit and is unrelated to weight.
Too small of bra and armpit fat
Wearing a bra that is too small will not "cause" armpit fat. It will however push up the fat in the area causing it to protrude around that band of the bra.
Can wearing a bra that is too small cause armpit fat?
The answer is false, a too tight bra will not cause you to develop underarm fat. Also a too tight bra will not restrict breast development, but will be quite uncomfortable.
