Excess elbow fat
Arm fat - will exercise help?
- This is hard to answer without an examination -
- If the skin is loose, you may need an arm lift.
- If there is localized fat, you may need liposuction.
- Triceps and biceps weight lifting will increase the muscle and give better definition of the arms.

Unlike muscles, you cannot target specific fat areas to go away. To lose fat in your arms, you would have to lose fat overall. You can target muscles in your exercises, but there are no exercises that will specifically get rid of fat. The gold standard for fat in the arms is liposuction, but the concern would be hanging skin after the fat is removed. There are non-invasive techniques to get rid of fat, but they provide limited amounts of fat that can be destroyed. I would recommend you see a reputable plastic surgeon to see what your best options are for your arms. A good surgeon should be able to offer several options, along with the pros and cons of each, and whether he/she think that option will meet your goals. Good luck!
