“Bingo Wings” Procedures Increase in Popularity


It must be the Michelle Obama effect! The glamorous First Lady of the White House is known for her love of sleeveless dresses – and she has the perfectly toned arms to go with them. With summer finally on its way, more of us are no doubt looking forward to wearing these kinds of clothes and enjoying the freedom of movement they offer.

Along with the President’s wife, stars Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore and Jessica Biel also have much admired and well toned upper limbs.

Equally, if you’re often in the gym or at exercise classes, you probably don’t want long sleeves, especially in the run-up to the warmer weather.

But you don’t have to feel self-conscious about your upper limbs. In the States, upper arm lifts which surgically remove extra fat from below the arm have increased by a staggering 4,000% within the last 10 years. American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) says 15,000 went under the knife for these operations in 2012 in the States, 98% of them female. In 2000, that number was just 300.

Now experts in the UK have said that demand for surgical treatment for “bingo wings” is set to rise in Britain, since American cosmetic treatments rarely take long to cross the Atlantic.

One UK-based cosmetic practitioner and past president of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons said: “In summer, in particular, people clearly want to do a lot more about their ‘bingo wings’. It can also be an issue if you are losing weight, and are left with excess skin.”

If you have excess fat on your arms, with their skin still quite tight, a vaser treatment (a type of liposuction) could well be all that’s needed to get rid of it. But if you have a lot of loose skin after shedding some excess pounds, it may also be worth considering a brachioplasty, which is an incision from elbow to armpit to remove extra skin and fat.

Chances are, however, that all you’ll need will be a quick, straightforward vaser lipo procedure, a technique which can also be used to work on your stomach, thighs and other areas of your body.

So why not find out more – and embrace summer with confidence.
