Anterior Axillary Injections
What Does Anterior Axillary Mean?
A properly fitting bra can only do so much. Anterior Axillary refers to the fatty tissue that has formed above the breasts, at the front of the armpits or on the back. This tissue can create rolls that form above the bra, and cause clothes to fit improperly.
Kybella Injections for Anterior Axilla
Kybella is an injectable that melts fat cells it comes in contact with. By injecting it in the anterior axillary tissue, you can reduce the appearance of fat and smooth out the area that tends to bunch up around the bra lines. Depending on how much excess tissue is present, it might require multiple treatments. Numbing cream and ice are used prior to treatment for comfort measures. The appointment generally takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour, which includes numbing time and time for any questions the patient may have.
How Kybella, the Fat Burning Injectable, Works
It breaks down fat cells and creates a smoother appearance by causing the body to absorb the broken down fatty cells. After getting a Kybella treatment, the skin should appear more taunt and the injection site smoother.
Post-Op Care for Anterior Axilla Treatment
Once Kybella is injected and the fat cells are dissolved, those cells can no longer accumulate fat. In other words, once you have reached your desired look, you won’t need to maintain it over time with continued injection treatments.
Some side effects include:
- Temporary numbness at the injection site
