The end-of-the-year statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) shows that there’s been a huge increase in arm lifts lately: an increase of 4,473 percent since 2000, in fact. Arm lifts aren’t the only procedure that patients are pursuing to get sculpted upper arms, either. Liposuction of the upper arm has also increased significantly lately. What’s driving this new trend?
Celebrity Role Models
Although anyone can pick up a magazine and see the likes of Demi Moore, Madonna or Kate Hudson sporting slim, muscular biceps, there’s even more pressure for those of us who live right next door to those impressive upper arms. Like so many other things in Beverly Hills, you can blame celebrities for inspiring the new lipo craze in the quest to achieve toned, sculpted upper arms. A recent poll even indicated that first lady Michelle Obama was on the list of women who inspired others to buff up their arms.
Celebrities aren’t the only factor at work here, either. The fashions today, particularly the more revealing summer fashions, show off more upper arm than ever, which is a great incentive to get your arms in shape this season.
Unfortunately, no matter how many curls you try, sometimes you just can’t get your ideal level of definition. That’s where lipo comes in. With liposuction, I can sculpt away the fatty deposits in your upper arms that are responsible for blurring muscle tone. The results? Slimmer, more sculpted upper arms that might make Madonna herself a little bit jealous.
