Rock your sleeveless shirts this year with toned arms in one monthIt's still a little chilly in New York, but sleeveless-shirts weather will be here before you can say "bicep curl." If the thought of bare arms in the office and strappy sundresses on the weekends makes you want to hide under long sleeves, you're not alone.

Upper arm lifts, which can include liposuction or brachioplasty (where loose skin is removed from the back of the arms), are on the rise, reports the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. It recently released its 2012 statistics, and arm lifts were up 3% in just one year - and more than 4,000% since 2000. Not surprising, when you consider the toned arms on red carpets and in the White House. (In fact, when asked whose arms they'd most like to have, 31% of women said Michelle Obama and 29% said Jennifer Aniston.) But for many people, a combination of diet and strength training to lose fat and tone up can get their arms in shape.
