About Axillary Breast Removal surgery in Hyderabad at Ambrosia

Axillary breast removal can be unilateral or bilateral. The surgery can be done one at a time or both together. Depending on the size and the patient preference the surgery can be done under local or general anaesthesia. If the bulge is tiny and totally fatty, then a liposuction alone may be sufficient, but usually, the bulge contains solid breast tissue and extra skin.

The incision is closed with absorbable sutures, and the scar is hidden mostly. Restriction of the arm movement is advised for one week, and in one month all activities can be resumed.
