Armpit fat

Which part of the body do you think is the most critical when wearing a cami, vest or sleeveless clothes? The armpit fat must be one of the top 3 answers! The bulge of fat hanging around the armpit when you wear a bra or cami is definitely not a pleasant thing to notice. Therefore, armpit fat removal treatment is not a new thing and is very common.

What is armpit fat

Armpit fat is the bulge of skin and fat that appears between the breast and the armpit, it looks like another pair of breasts whenever you wear a bra or well-fitted top. Armpit fat can also appear at specific areas such as the abdomen and groin.

Armpit fat can be divided into inherited armpit fat and acquired armpit fat.

○ Inherited armpit fat can be divided into complete type and incomplete type. They appear at the front armpit and at the armpit, sometimes upper and lower parts of the breast, abdomen and groin. In some cases, the armpit fat develops normal breast features such as nipples and areola. You will notice significant change of inherited armpit fat during pregnancy and breastfeeding as they become bigger and, in some cases, produce milk.

○ Acquired armpit fat, on the other hand, does not develop any breast features such as nipples or mammary glands. It is largely caused by improper clothes/bras wearing, causing the development of accumulation or fold of skin.  

Inherited armpit fat is rare. The armpit fat most people have is acquired armpit fat that causes no pathological harm and can be treated by medical aesthetic treatments.


●  Inherited armpit fat:

During the fetal development, few pairs of mammary glands are developed from the armpit to the groin. However, most of them will be degraded, and only one pair at the breast will remain before the childbirth. It is possible that degradation of gland is not complete before the childbirth, which may lead to the development of armpit fat. Some common areas that develop armpit fat are upper and lower parts of the breasts, abdomen and outer side of thighs.

●  Acquired armpit fat:

The formation of acquired armpit fat is largely determined by overweight, accumulation of fat at the armpit, wearing improper size of bras and wearing non-functional bras such as strapless and half cup bras. Wearing small bras or tight straps will squeeze the fat out of the breast to the armpit, causing the formation of armpit fat.


Commonly seen as a bulge of fat at the area between the breast and the armpit. It becomes more noticeable when wearing a tight top.

Affected groups

Armpit fat caused by fat accumulation can happen to both males and females who are overweight. Armpit fat can have an impact on our body image, how we dress up and how we socialise.


Receiving surgical treatments such as liposuction to remove armpit fat will experience a higher risk. In Ai Beauty Clinic, you can get a lower risk and effective treatment to remove armpit fat which is CoolSculpting.

A. CoolSculpting Elite

What is CoolSculpting:

CoolSculpting Elite system is a fat freezing treatment system developed by renowned dermatologists Dr.R.Rox Anderson and Dr. Fieter Manstein at Massachusetts General Hospital (A teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School), and manufactured by American medical equipment manufacturer ZELTIQ AESTHETICS, INC.. The system has been widely used in more than 80 countries globally with more than 5 millions successful practical cases. This technology has been certified by the US FDA, China CFDA and CE. Its safety and prominent results have granted the CoolSculpting technology to be a world class body sculpting treatment.


Based on the cold-intolerance property of fat cells, CoolSculpting technology utilises low temperature (4~5℃) applicators to chill the unwanted fat cells. Fat cells will then die and be excreted out of the body as they can not tolerate low temperature. The accurate temperature setting and the usage of the applicator probe ensure that the process will not damage any normal body tissues except fat cells. Thanks to the high accuracy and specificity, one treatment can achieve a removal of 22.4% fat.


1、Face-to-face consultation: Evaluation of bulges including location and size. Doctor will provide a suggested treatment plan based on your situation and expectation.

2、Pre-treatment: Draw markings to define treatment areas. Clean, disinfect and install the tip of applicator.

3、Sculpting treatment: Place the applicator probe against your skin to deliver cooling to fat cells.

4、Post-treatment caring.
