Plastic Surgeon Dr. Dean Kane of Baltimore Answers Question Regarding Armpit Fat Treatment Options

Q: I’m a healthy, active 29 year old adult woman. Will CoolSculpt, liposuction or other options help reduce armpit fat? I have done targeted workouts, diets, healthy things. I am have always been embarrassed by this. I am looking for a permanent solution. I would also consider moving fat from other parts of body to my boobs if an option.

A: Thanks for sharing your photos. I do see the fullness you are concerned about. This may be fat and/or breast tissue. When it is fat:

  • CoolSculpting is a non-surgical option which has helped many of my patients for the same concern.
  • Liposuction of this area and others is a great option to harvest the fat and “fill” the breast for more volume.

If it is breast tissue other options will need to be considered.

  • In both cases, consult with an experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for proper examination and the appropriate options.

Wishing you the best. Stay well!
