axillary breast excision
axillary breast excision is a surgical procedure that removes excess breast tissue from the axillary (underarm) area. this procedure is typically performed on individuals who have developed excess breast tissue in this area, which can cause discomfort and embarrassment.
individuals who may consider axillary breast excision include those who have developed excess breast tissue in the underarm area due to hormonal imbalances, obesity, or genetics. it is also commonly performed on individuals who have undergone breast reduction surgery and have excess breast tissue remaining in the underarm area.
individuals who should not consider axillary breast excision include those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, those with an active infection or skin disease in the underarm area, and those with certain medical conditions that may affect healing.
Description of Procedure
the procedure for axillary breast excision typically involves the use of local anesthesia or intravenous sedation. the surgeon will make an incision in the underarm area and remove excess breast tissue. the incision is then closed with sutures.
Course of Recovery
the recovery period for axillary breast excision varies from person to person, but typically involves a few days of rest and limited arm movement to allow the incision to heal. pain medication may be prescribed to manage any discomfort.
possible complications of axillary breast excision include infection, scarring, and changes in sensation in the underarm area. it is important to discuss any potential risks with a surgeon before undergoing the procedure.
