The anterior axillary is located near the armpit and between the shoulder and bra line; while the posterior axillary is at the back of the armpit. These areas usually have pockets of fat that are difficult to reduce with only diet and exercise. Often called “bra fat” or “side boobs”, liposuction is a great option to help reduce these areas, which will positively affect self-esteem and self-confidence. By reducing these areas, you will feel more comfortable wearing strapless dresses and sleeveless tops. In many cases, this procedure is done in combination with back bra line and mid-back reduction to create a smooth, flawless profile.
The procedure uses a local tumescent anesthetic in a safe, comfortable in-office surgical suite. After the anesthetic has been injected, micro-cannulas are inserted through which the fat deposits are gently suctioned away. Because patients remain awake, Dr. Wright can re-position them to create a symmetrical, even look.
