Don't worry: If you have attempted to work on this area with exercise and it persists, i recommend accepting it as part of who you are. Your other option is consultation with a plastic surgeon about possibility of surgical removal. ...Read more

My husband has been diagnosed with DVT in his left arm. After sonagram he now has a lg bulge in the armpit area should we be alarmed?

My husband has been diagnosed with DVT in his left arm. After sonagram he now has a lg bulge in the armpit area should we be alarmed?

Yes, be seen now.: if the diagnosis is correct and the swelling is new he needs to be seen immediately. He may now have pooling of blood, a dissection of a vessel " rupture ", or a secondary issue. Much better to be safe than have serious complications. A trip to ER may allow for an ultrasound or CT to rule out the above. Good luck and get a consult. ...Read more

Sorry : Sorry it took so long to answer this question. The treatment options for this region depend largely on two things, skin tone and lipodystrophy (excess fat). Thus, things like age, current weight, and weight gain/loss history are important in determine treatment options. A great outcome occurs when the appropriate treatment is paired with the problem at hand. Liposuction is the most likely option, but this is only a good option when skin elasticity is intact. Good skin elasticity is generally present in those who are relatively young and who have not had dramatic shifts in weight. When one loses excess weight, the skin may not rebound. So when liposuction is performed, only yields great results when the skin retracts. If skin elasticity is poor (i.e. If stretch marks are present) direct excision of skin and involved fat may be required. A physical exam would be required to give a more detailed assessment. A free consultation can be attained from most plastic surgeons. Liposuction is generally $1000 to $2000 per region. Direct excision may cost $1500 to $3000 depending on the location of your physician and experience. Stick with surgeons who are board certified by the american board of plastic surgeons. Hope this helps! ...Read more

My armpits are convex and bulgy. my friends laugh when they see it. can i remove the fat in a natural way?

Those aren't friends: ,so first get rid of them- then, if you then find you still want something done, the only option would be surgery. Several options: Liposuction, Liposuction curettage (to also decrease sweat glands) ± hair removal- which I call The Underarm Overhaul. Open surgery would also work. Best option would depend entirely on a plastic surgeon's exam ...Read more

Kidding?: If any of us could answer that we would be billionaires. Don't you think? One cannot spot lose weight. Exercise, low carb eating, and specific exercises can help your whole body. But no one can lose weight in specific spots on their own. ...Read more

I'm 16 and a guy how do you lose armpit fat and chest fat ?

I'm 16 and a guy how do you lose armpit fat and chest fat ?

Lose weight: Unfortunately, there are not really any tricks or special exercises to lose fat in particular areas. You need to lose weight overall, then you'll see an improvement in these areas. Diet and exercise - it's more important to make small changes that you can live with long term than to lose a lot of weight (only to gain it back). Meeting with a dietician is often helpful. Best of luck! ...Read more

Depends: Your armpit fat may be accessory breast tissue. Are you still breast feeding? If you are, the tissue under the arm will stay enlarged along with the normal breast tissue as long as you're breast feeding. Once you stop breast feeding, the normal lactating breast tissue will decrease in size as well as the accessory tissue under the arm. Ask your ob/gyn to take a look. ...Read more
