What is Brachioplasty?

Vallery Jean- Getty Images

Everyone has a part of their body they could live without.  For me that part is my arms.  I refuse to wear anything sleeveless no matter how hot and humid it is because I’ve always had big arms.  It used to be that my arms were big and muscular, but as I’ve gotten older  they’ve turned big and jiggly. No amount of working out has ever reduced the size of my upper arms.

All my life I’ve dreamed of having cute small arms and being able to wear adorable little sleeveless tops and it looks like I’m not the only one with arm issues.

According to an annual report, brachioplasty, or upper arm lifts, are the fastest-growing plastic surgeries.  That’s when you deal with flabby upper arms, and it involves lipo, skin removal, or both. The procedure has spiked more than 4,000% in the last 10 years.  Experts say that many people who have lost a significant amount of weight get the surgery to correct sagging excess skin.  In 2000, about 300 women got their upper arms tightened . . . last year it was up to 15,000.

I’ve wanted to have something like this done for as long as I can remember, but now people are saying First Lady Michelle Obama, who’s known for her enviably toned arms, may have helped influence the trend.

If money weren’t an issue, what part of your body would you change?
