How much does it cost to undergo the removal of excess breast tissue from both armpits

Q:

Medium sized lumps in both armpits. Has been diagnosed as excess breast tissues.

A:

 

 For lipodystrophy or excessive skin and fat excess extending from the arm pit out towards the breast usually liposuction and skin excision are required to prevent unsightly folds or wrinkles post-operatively. The incision is usually hidden well in the arm pit area. If breast tissue is present a biopsy of this tissue may be required. Prices for these types of procedures often vary from $3,500 and up. May I recommend an examination by an ASAPS members to address your concerns? Best,
