New Stats: Plastic Surgery Trend Has Women Armed for Spring and Summer (audio) American Society of Plastic Surgeons Share Print E-Mail Loading audio... Caption Plastic surgery for better arms in women is surging. New statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) show that arm lifts in women have skyrocketed a staggering 4,378 percent in just over the last decade. It is a trend fueled, in part, by sleeveless fashions for women and more focus on strong-armed celebrities. In 2000, more than 300 women got upper arm lift procedures. Last year, more than 15,000 did.
