Every once in awhile someone (usually famous) is admired in the media for a certain ideal body part. Remember the J-Lo booty? Or more currently Kim Kardashian’s rounded rump? The focus is shifting now to the upper arms. Hello Jennifer Aniston. Wave to me Michelle Obama! Toned and tightened upper arms are the new “must have” body part.
Often referred to as bat-wings, upper arms that display floppy, flapping in the wind excess skin are just so OUT. The trend toward sleek upper arms may have you heading to the gym for triceps toning exercises. Unfortunately, exercise can only strengthen the underlying muscle tone of the upper arm. It can’t address sagging skin or fat deposits.
A surgical procedure known as an arm lift or brachioplasty can address all of the above. In fact, according to the ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgery), since 2000, upper arm lift surgery for women is up 4,378%. Last year more than 15,000 women had the procedure.
The patient above lost over 100 lbs through diet and exercise leaving her with obvious hanging skin. Arm lift surgery was her only option for improvement of her upper arms. Today, she is proud of her new look, wearing sleeveless tops and able to wave without a waddle. She may not be a star, but her results are paparazzi perfect.
