Armpit Fat Removal in Encino

Armpit Fat Removal

Armpit fat removal, or armpit liposuction, is most commonly employed to create a more flattering appearance in the upper torso area. This liposuction procedure can be performed on anyone with excess fat in the armpit region but is more commonly sought out by women. It is sometimes referred to as bra line liposuction or a bra roll reduction, as it directly addresses bulges near the breasts and upper back.

Based in Encino, Dr. Steven J. Varkony is a widely renowned plastic surgeon and an acknowledged leader in liposuction procedures. He is the only plastic surgeon in the San Fernando Valley area currently employing VASER ultrasound liposuction. This state-of-the-art process differs from other procedures in that it results in a more thorough and even liposuction. Patients and experts agree that it can achieve greater definition and overall better outcomes compared to older types of liposuction.  Click here for further information about VASER ultrasound liposuction.

Dr. Steven Varkony has developed an operation called the Hidden Scar Arm Lift. Utilizing his unique approach, this surgery gets rid of the old- fashioned, ugly, vertical scar and replaces it with a hidden scar, a scar lying transversely (horizontally) across the armpit. Now you can have tighter, younger looking arms without anyone knowing that you had surgery. Yes, you can wear short sleeves again! After surgery your arms are tighter, slimmer and younger –looking. People love the results of the “Invisible” Arm Lift. Over and over again, we hear how great a difference this surgery has made in our patients’ lives.

Frequently asked questions about the Armpit Fat Removal procedure.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Armpit Fat Removal?

Individuals in good health and with healthy skin elasticity are the best candidates for armpit fat removal. All patients should be also cleared for the procedure by their primary physician; those 45 and over will also need an EKG.

What are the Benefits of the Procedure?

Armpit fat removal enhances definition in the targeted area and can significantly improve the definition in the outer part of the breast. In some cases, however, patients may need an additional procedure to remove sagging skin.

Liposuction, in general, has a very high satisfaction rate, and procedures targeting the bra roll or underarm area are no exception. Patients report feeling much more comfortable and confident in their appearance after this procedure.

What Occurs After Armpit Liposuction?

Most patients can return home the same day of their procedure. As a precaution, patients who return to their residence after being cleared will need to have a friend or relative stay with them the first night following the procedure.

Before surgery, the doctor will prescribe antibiotics to prevent infection and other medications for patients to take during their recovery period.

What Can Patients Expect During Armpit Fat Removal Recovery?

Downtime with this procedure is relatively minimal. Most patients can otherwise resume most of their normal routine within about 48 hours. Returning to the gym make take a little longer.

Minimal pain and discomfort are to be expected but are usually manageable with over-the-counter medications. Most of the swelling will have subsided in a few weeks and the patient’s outcome will become apparent. However, it may take a few more months before all the swelling has resolved and the full results of the procedure are visible.
