Stubborn Fat On Arms




Homepage > Conditions of the body > Stubborn Fat On Arms

The arms are often one of the biggest problem areas for both men and women. The upper arms are prone to storing stubborn fat that is extremely difficult to get rid of. Commonly known as bingo wings, stubborn fat on the arms is a problem that many people struggle with.

Bingo wings refer to the fatty deposits that are located around the tricep muscles on the back of upper arm. These areas of stubborn fat on the arms are notoriously difficult to shift and a point of self-consciousness for many.

It can seem like no matter what diet or exercise is done, stubborn fat on the arms simply will not budge, and there are a few reasons for this. As the body ages, weight loss becomes increasingly difficult because of a slowdown in metabolic rate. On top of this, there are many changes to the skin and connective bands which bind the skin to the underlying muscles. The upper arms, or bingo wings, are one of these areas that are prone to these changes, particularly in women.

Stubborn Fat On Arms Treatments At Hans Place Practice

Here at Hans Place Practice, we offer treatments that can help to reduce stubborn fat on the arms;

VASER Liposuction

VASER liposuction is a cosmetic treatment which uses targeted ultrasound technology to selectively remove areas of fat and reshape the body. It can be used on large areas of fat or on very targeted areas such as stubborn fat on the arms.

This treatment involves the bingo wings being filled with a special saline and local anaesthetic solution using small incisions, followed by a small probe being inserted to emit ultrasound energy which breaks up the fatty tissue. VASER lipo is particularly good for treating stubborn fatty areas such as the upper arms.

Some people require extra skin tightening after VASER liposuction or weight loss on the arms. Renuvion is a ground-breaking treatment that can tighten and tone the skin without the need for invasive surgery. It can be combined with VASER lipo to treat bingo wings, and the results are slimmer and tighter upper arms.

Renuvion uses radio-frequency energy cooled by helium which contracts the cells and boosts the production of collagen in the skin. This creates an instant firming effect and leaves the skin smooth, tight and toned.
