An armpit lump can develop in both men and women. These lumps can be collections of fat or extra breast tissue that extends into the armpit. In our country, even TB glands can cause such a lump. But in that case, the major symptom is fever.
Even if the breast lumps are present in the armpit since birth, they become visible only when there is a hormonal change like the beginning of periods, pregnancy, or menopause.
The most common discomfort caused by this condition is the inability to keep arms straight. Excessive sweating, improper fitting of clothes, and fear of having a tumor are the common reasons why a plastic surgeon’s opinion is sought. Rarely, pain along the inner arm can be a presenting symptom.
Lasercosmesis doctors have done original research on this topic and published a paper and a chapter in the textbook. After careful examination, an ultrasound examination is done to confirm the diagnosis. Other tests are done to check the fitness for surgery.
Careful marking is done before the operation.
The lump is removed under anesthesia through a cut in the hair-bearing skin of the armpit. Getting out a piece of this skin gives an added advantage- of reducing the smelly hair. The extra fat is then removed with the help of liposuction. This helps limit the incision to the hair-bearing area and keep it hidden. The scar also heals very well. If the patient so wishes, we can also contour the nearby areas like folds on the back-- the bra rolls-- to give a nice shape to the back and the side of the chest.

What are the complications associated with the surgery?
This is a surgical procedure carefully executed after proper tests and evaluation of one’s fitness for surgery. Surgical complications like infection, bleeding can occur but are extremely rare with our cleaning protocols. Sometimes, if nerves passing through the operated area are affected, one may get a temporary burning sensation or loss of sensation over a small area of the inner arm's skin. This usually recovers and does not interfere with any daily activity. Another rare possibility is a fluid collection in the wound. Lasercosmesis specializes in tubeless operations, and fluid collection is not seen in our patients. The real problem that can cause trouble is an allergy to the sticking plaster. Preventive treatment is given to avoid this.
It is important to follow every instruction for a smooth recovery. We will always be reachable for solving your doubts. With our approach, the overall complication rate is very low, and worrying about complications should not deter this rewarding procedure. To know more about the benefits of this or having any doubts consult with an expert at Lasercosmesis.
