Everyone has that friend who endlessly encourages group exercise, whether it be signing up to yoga, boxercise, a step class, or the latest fad in getting fit. It’s no surprise that people’s motives behind going to these exercise classes are usually based around losing weight or toning up, but for some of us, there are specific areas of the body that we just aren’t happy with. Take bingo wings as an example: with the amount of horrible names dedicated to the flesh around the upper arms, it has become a source of self-consciousness for many men and women alike.
Bingo wings aren’t always just caused by excess fat, but rather can be split into 4 categories:
Regularly consuming more calories than you burn leads to weight gain, where excess energy is stored as fat around the body, including around the upper arms. Due to the role of genetics in fat storage, some people are more likely to have stubborn fat deposits around the upper arm that, despite all the clean eating and working out, are difficult to get rid of.
After weight loss where it has been lost quickly, or without toning up, loose skin can be left behind that forms bingo wings. This can also be affected by ageing, as vital proteins in the skin break down and reduce skin elasticity, leaving saggy skin.
Extra Weight And Loose Skin
Sometimes bingo wings are caused by both extra weight and loose skin, and these two concerns have to be treated separately.
Male Bingo Wings
It’s important to remember that although women are seen as the most common customer for cosmetic treatments, men are affected by aesthetic concerns too. Male bingo wings can cause as much self-consciousness as those in women, and can be treated just as easily.
