  • Are more women going under the knife to get Michelle Obama’s arms?

    According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, people in the U.S. spent $11 billion on the cosmetic procedures alone. But the society chose to highlight one procedure that is less familiar: the upper arm-lift.  In 2012, 15,457 patients, 98% of them women, spent a total of $61 million to have liposuction on their arms, or what’s known as a brachioplasty (a surgery that involves making an incision from the armpit to the elbow, usually along the back of the arm, to remove excess skin).  The number of procedures was up 4,378% since 2000, when only about 300 women opted for it, the group reported.

    Some say Michelle Obama has been the inspiration behind this increase.

    In a statement, the The American Society of Plastic Surgeons said that doctors didn’t point to a single reason for the increase, but took note of poll data indicating that women “are paying closer attention to the arms of female celebrities” and First Lady Michelle Obama’s arm are the most admired.
