Submit your question below about any cosmetic procedure to be considered for posting with an answer from one of our board-certified plastic surgeons.
Note: ASAPS cannot give advice about specific medical problems nor should answers provided by responding surgeons be substituted for a complete medical history, work-up and an in-personal medical/surgical consultation. Sorry we can't answer all questions. We try to select questions that have the widest general interest.
What are the risks of removing blocked milk ducts and tightening of the skin around the top of the arms?
There are no milk ducts in the arm pit area. There are sweat glands called apocrine glands that in some patients cause excessive sweating or boils/abscesses. The latter is referred to as "Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS)" -http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hidradenitis_suppurativa
May I suggest you check out this reference and see if it is of assistance.
