Michelle Obama’sarms have inspired a nation of women to get up and get to the doctor’s office for a little nip here and a tuck there. You know when you lift your arms and you feel that jiggle three seconds after the lift? Well, daytime TV diva, Wendy Williamscalls them “Bingo Wings” and she’s always vocalized her dislike of the sagging skin. She’s never been alone in her disdain; plenty of women around the world try everything they can to get their arms tight like Michelle Obama’s and various other Hollywood hotties.
According to the Daily Mail, “upper arm lifts can include liposuction or a surgical procedure known as brachioplasty, in which loose skin is removed from the back of the arms. In 2000, more than 300 women had upper arm lift procedures in America. Last year, more than 15,000 did.”
Even though experts can’t fully point the finger at women in the spotlight’s taut arms, they do realize that the surgical trend for correcting “Bingo Wings” has grown. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons president, Gregory Evans claims that some women have always seen their arms as their trouble area, but seek diet, exercise and liposuction to help refine those areas, however, “Others may opt for a brachioplasty when there is a fair amount of loose skin present with minimal elasticity.”
I know I struggle with my jiggly arms, but I am a big woman, so I know there’s parts of me that are always going to shimmy and shake more than others. Here’s the thing, I’m ok with that. I’m not a surgery-kinda-girl. I prefer working hard in the gym to seek my desired look and if I never get it, I’m fine with that because I am fine with who I am and how my arms shake two minutes after moving it.
Would you get surgery to keep your “Bingo Wings” from swinging?
