When these muscles are in excess they may pose a few problems. Discomfort in arm movements, and a condition called eczematous rashes that occur in the region due to excess skin fold problematic conditions. The excessive muscles may give an unsightly appearance both within and out of the brassieres. Hence, patients tend to opt for the Axillary fold treatment for both functional and aesthetic reasons. Whatever the reason may be, it is necessary to consult an orthopaedic surgeon. The surgeon will do an assessment of the breast and fat tissue and also the quality of the skin in the region. Based on the volume of the skin the treatment procedure is decided. When the skin fold is minimal to moderate, a bespoke liposuction treatment under local anaesthesia is suggested. While excess skin is to be removed, a surgical procedure along with liposuction is advised. The surgical procedure leaves a scar in the patients while liposuction alone does not leave any scar. The treatment is considered to be a well-tolerated treatment. However, a few side effects are reported. Common side effects reported are swelling and discomfort in the region in the first 48 hours. The patient may develop Seroma between 2 days and 2 weeks. And after 2 weeks and thereafter, the patient may feel an asymmetry and excess skin appearing as a fold.
