Concerned about Bingo Wings?

Our modern treatments for a Bingo Wings focus on stimulating collagen production to gradually improve skin texture and tightness over time for natural-looking results.

Causes of Bingo Wings

  • Ageing: As we age, the skin’s natural collagen and elastin production decreases, leading to reduced skin elasticity. Over time, gravity pulls down on the arms, adding to this sagging effect. Hormonal Changes can also be a leading cause, with decreased oestrogen levels, triggered by health conditions or menopause, further decrease collagen production, impacting skin all over the body, including the arms.
  • Muscle Loss: Lack of regular physical activity, especially muscle-strengthening exercises, can result in muscle atrophy in the arms. This makes them appear less toned and exacerbates the appearance of sagging skin.
  • Weight Fluctuations: Repeated weight gain and loss stretch the skin, leading to an ‘excess’ that looks loose and lacks firmness. On the arms, this can cause the signature ‘bingo wing’ appearance.
  • Sun Exposure: Spending a lot of time in the sun can accelerate collagen breakdown due to UV rays, reducing overall skin quality and contributing to slack skin resembling ‘bingo wings’.
  • Genetics: Some individuals may be more genetically predisposed to developing ‘bingo wings’ due to a combination of the above factors.

Surgical and Non-surgical Options

Surgical Options: For more severe ‘bingo wings’, surgical solutions may be necessary for noticeable results.

  • Brachioplasty (Arm Lift Surgery): This procedure involves removing excess skin and fat from the upper arms. It is an effective but aggressive option for arm toning.
  • Liposuction: Liposuction can surgically suction out excess fat from the arms, addressing the ‘bingo wing’ appearance.

Non-Surgical Solutions

  • Exercise: Regular resistance and weight training exercises targeting the arms can build muscle and tone, helping reduce bingo wings.
  • Balanced Diet: Maintaining a balanced diet can prevent weight fluctuations and keep your skin in good condition, reducing the likelihood of developing bingo wings.

By exploring both surgical and non-surgical options, you can find the most suitable treatment to achieve toned and youthful-looking arms. Always consult with a qualified practitioner to determine the best approach for your specific needs.
