Has Anyone Had Their "Bingo" Arms Done Yet?

This is in reference to the "coolsculpting" procedure.
Coolsculpting for the Bingo arms
In some patients, Zeltiq Coolsculpting can be used on the arms to diminish fat but it will not, to any significant extent, tighten loose skin that is so commonly the issue with the Bingo Wings/Arms. For most with this concern unfortunately the only definitive answer remains surgery.

Coolsculpting for Bingo arms
Typically Coolsculpting works great but I would discourage treatment in the "Bingo" arms. Coolsculpting will reduce fat but wont reduce or contract laxity and that means the pendulous skin will continue to hang loosely on the arms.
CoolSculpting can reduce fat in upper arms
If there is satisfactory elasticity of the arm skin, then CoolSculpting can be attempted provided the applicator fits with good suction. This would be an off-label treatment until the company designs an applicator designed for the arms.
