You know that bit of fat that shows out of the arm holes of your favorite tank top? That is called axillary breast tissue! Did you know that at MidAmerica Plastic Surgery, we offer axillary breast tissue removal. You can feel confident knowing that your favorite tank top will look just as good as it feels! The purpose of this blog is to provide education on axillary breast tissue and insight on how it is removed at MidAmerica Plastic Surgery.
