Arm fat is the wobbly areas of flesh that hang under the tricep on the upper arm.

What Causes Arm Fat?

There are a number of factors that can lead to a person developing arm fat. As we age, collagen breaks down, reducing firmness and structure thus resulting in loose skin.

Ageing also leads to a depletion of hormones in particular testosterone which negatively impacts muscle tone that, again, results in saggy skin. Rapid weight loss, poor diet also play a part in the development of arm fat.

At Meyer Clinic, we offer the most advanced cosmetic procedures in fat reduction.

CoolSculpting® is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment which delivers proven results without surgery, or downtime. This non-invasive, fat freezing (cryolipolysis) treatment is a body contouring method that reduces fat cells in flabby arms with results that are long lasting and noticeable.

We use specialised applicators specifically designed to treat the unique shape of the upper arms, getting rid of these stubborn areas of fat is even easier. As one of only a few clinics in the UK offering DualSculpting, we can also decrease treatment time, making it quick and convenient for those with hectic schedules.

Our team can also advise on nutrition, supplementation and Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) to support ongoing results.


Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can be used to treat men and women when their hormone levels drop or become unbalanced. These are manmade hormones derived from plant estrogens that are chemically identical to those the human body produces. Estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone are among those most commonly replicated and used in treatment.

Nutritional Therapy

Working with a professional Nutritional Therapist can be the key to successfully changing your approach to food and to achieving your body composition goals. Eating mindfully and choosing filling, nutritious foods can help keep calories in check without having to track every bite, and without losing muscle muscle.

With the InBody analysis you’ll be able to make the relevant lifestyle changes to be able to work towards achieving optimum health and wellbeing.
