There are many patients who come to consult with us because of scars and troubles after armpit surgery.
The most common problem is hypertrophic scars, which are raised or whitened scars. It's an ugly complication that has become bumpy and swelling.
I think that there are quite a lot of patients who suffer from this complication after a while even if the surgery is successful.
The reality is that doctors also perform surgery without notifying patients about this complication.
For complications of armpit surgery
XNUMX: Blood speciation
XNUMX: Skin necrosis
XNUMX: Hypertrophic scar
XNUMX: Wound contracture
XNUMX: Hair folliculitis
XNUMX: Keratin plug formation
XNUMX: Epidermoid cyst
XNUMX: Axillary nerve injury
However, some complications occur after surgery and some complications occur after a long period of time.
For this reason, our hospital does not select surgery and adopts the EL method, which does not use a scalpel, to perform treatment that leaves no scars.
Surgery is required for keratin plug formation and epidermoid cysts.
Moreover, it is necessary to make an incision in the scarred skin and remove the capsule, which requires advanced technology and experience.
I have also performed a considerable number of operations to remove cysts and keratin plugs, but it takes a long time to cure even small cysts that have large capsules under the skin and can be peeled off and completely removed. There are some difficult cases.
Patients who were worried about scars when they were bumpy this time as well.
I took a picture at the monitor consultation, but the bulging part was exactly the formation of an epidermoid cyst.
Surgical removal is required.
The scars of armpit surgery are small. ●● Even though it is a method, there is not little damage to the peeled skin, and we want patients to know in advance that cyst formation occurs at a considerable rate, and doctors also firmly do so. I think there is a need / obligation to explain the risks.
