Chicken wings are hot this year, and we’re not talking about fried poultry. Upper arm lifts to banish excess fat and give arms a more attractive, toned appearance are this year’s hot ticket cosmetic surgery procedure. Demand for upper arm lifts has grown dramatically over the past decade, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Last year, more than 15,000 upper arm lifts were performed in the U.S., compared to just over 300 in 2000. That’s an astounding increase of 4,387%! While the majority of the arm lifts were performed on women between the ages of 40 and 54, more than 300 men also had arm lifts. About 40% of the arm lifts performed last year followed major weight loss.

Michelle Obama’s beautiful arms  have sparked a fad and were the arms that 39% of cosmetic surgery patients most wanted to emulate. Women also admired the graceful, well-toned arms of Jennifer Aniston (29%), Jessica Biel (16%), Kelly Ripa (13%) and Demi Moore (11%).

While we might wish to trade our flappy upper arms for Michele or Jen’s sleek, tanned ones, having surgery to excise that extra fat and skin isn’t so appealing. CoolSculpting offers the perfect alternative.
