Sick and tired of your flabby arms? You’ve done all kinds of workout exercises, but you still can’t get rid of those bat wings. Has it gotten to the point where you don’t even want to wear sleeveless tops or get into your swimsuit because you are so self conscious about your arm fat? Well, stop worrying because we might have the solution for you!

But, first, in order to treat flabby arms effectively we need to understand why it’s caused.

Why do we get flabby arms?

The appearance of flabby arms can be caused by a combination of loose skin, fat and muscle. The skin of the arms can get loose and flabby after massive weight loss where the skin was previously stretched. Also, as we get older our skin loses its elasticity. This can cause arm skin to get loose and hang.

Another contributor to the appearance of bat wings is excess arm fat. Extra arm fat usually ends up in the gravity dependent areas of the arm and can result in flabby arms.

Finally, loose muscle can also hang and worsen the appearance of your arms.

How to get rid of flabby arms

the treatment of flabby arms is directed towards its cause. Treatment will also depend on the amount of loose skin, fat and muscle in the area along with how aggressive you want to be with your treatment.

If you have mild to moderate flabbiness of your arms then non-surgical treatments may work well for you. We have successfully treated unwanted arm fat with the CoolSculpting fat freezing technique. If your flabby arms are caused by loose skin then we can use our ultrasound focused skin tightening procedure. Often these treatments can work in combination to give you the best results. These treatments can restore the shape and contour back to your arms.

In extreme situations of severe flabbiness then surgery will be the only option. The surgery is called a brachioplasty and involves excision of the loose skin and fat along with liposuction to contour the arms. The downside of surgery is that it requires downtime and is associated with a long scar that covers almost the entire length of the upper arm.
