New Stats: Plastic Surgery Trend Has Women Armed for Spring and Summer

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.
