When you think of popular plastic surgery you might think of a face lift, nose job, liposuction; but now there's a new trend- arm lifts! 

USA Today is reporting arm lifts are one of the fastest growing varieties of plastic surgery. More than 15,000 women got an arm lift in 2012 which was a 4000% increase since 2000.  

The reason behind this is because so many people are losing huge amounts of weight - typically through surgeries like bypass surgery.  They have a lot of extra skin that doesn't bounce back and need it to be nipped and tucked. 

This surgery can cost up to $5000.

Fitness trainer, Brett Ray joined Julie Luck on WFMY News 2 at 6:00 to show ways people can tone their arms using household items.

Ray is a certified fitness instructor for Greensboro Adventure Boot Camp.
