Why are the Arms a Problem Area?

The arms, specifically the upper arms, are a problem area because it is often obvious when they store excess fat or lack proper tone. Excess fat in the upper arm can visibly shake or jiggle when doing everyday activities, for instance waving or simply raising a hand, or turning a steering wheel. The often fleshy part of the upper arm that stores fat is sometimes called a “bingo wing” and it is common for people to seek out remedies for this condition.

When people have “bingo wings” or excess fat in the arms, they may feel self-conscious about how they look or even resist moving in a natural way to hide the movement of the excess fat. Individual may insist on wearing long sleeves or shawls to camouflage the insecurity they feel about the fat in their arms. To add to this problem, it is common for the fatty upper arms to resist change due to diet and exercise as we age. It can seem that no amount of weight lifting or resistance training can remedy the excess fat accumulated in the upper arm.

Can I Get Liposuction in My Arms?

Liposuction is indeed an effective way to reduce fatty tissue in the arms. Liposuction is safe, and the advanced techniques used now minimize any evidence of the procedure itself. Often, the small incision needed for liposuction in the arm is positioned within an elbow crease, or the armpit in such a way that no one would notice it during everyday activity or at all. Because liposuction is minimally invasive and effective, it is an ideal solution for individuals suffering from excess fat in the arms.
