Under Arm Fat (Bingo Wings)
- Under arm fat is colloquially known as bingo wings.
- Body contouring can be an effective way to treat bingo wings, including fat-freezing treatments.
Under arm fat is colloquially known as bingo wings, and can be more prominent when the arms are raised or shaken. Bingo wings are commonly associated with age and weight, though this isn’t always the case. The appearance of bingo wings can certainly be worsened by excess fat in the area, or by loose skin caused by weight loss, but for some patients, under arm fat is simply a result of a genetic predisposition to store fat in the area, even if a healthy weight is maintained throughout their life.
Body contouring can be an effective way to treat bingo wings, including fat-freezing treatments, also known as cryolipolysis. Treating bingo wings in this manner means fat cells are naturally eliminated through the lymphatic system, resulting in a permanent improvement in the appearance of excess fat in the area.
