(NaturalNews) The sycophantic worship of the Obamas continues unabated, especially in places like California, where sanity is at a premium.

Now, reports the Los Angeles Times, women are actually seeking plastic surgery in order to emulate the arms of first lady Michelle Obama. Apparently these women have never heard of a weight room or a gym.

According to the most recent cosmetic and reconstructive surgery statistics by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, many of the surgery trends were familiar.

Per the Times:

In all, the group reported, Americans underwent 1.6 million cosmetic surgeries, including face-lifts, liposuction and rhinoplasty; 13 million minimally invasive procedures (think Botox injections) and 5.6 million reconstructive procedures (including tumor removal and scar revision). People in the U.S. spent $11 billion on the cosmetic procedures alone.

The most popular form of reconstructive surgery, for the seventh year in a row, was breast augmentation, the organization reported, noting that 286,000 such procedures were performed in the U.S., a figure that has declined from the previous reporting period, according to the organization's full report [http://www.plasticsurgery.org].

Botox treatments also reached an all-time high, despite reports that such treatments are harmful and can actually become ineffective for many women through the formation of antibodies over the course of repeated treatments.

'Give me arms like Michelle!'

Middle-aged Americans were the demographic undergoing the bulk of reconstructive procedures; those between the ages of 40 and 54 "accounted for the largest portion of the cosmetic procedures: 6.8 million, or 48 percent." Of the procedures performed, 91 percent were done on women.

The organization also chose to highlight a procedure that is far less familiar: the upper arm lift. Last year, the ASPS said 15,457 patients - 98 percent of them women - spent $61 million to have their arms liposuctioned (a procedure known formally as brachioplasty, a surgery involving an incision from the armpit to the elbow, along the back of the arm, to remove excess skin). The number of these procedures was up an astounding 4,378 percent since 2000, when only some 300 women chose it.

In a statement, the plastic surgeon's organization said doctors did not single out a reason for the massive increase. But they did take note of polling data that indicated women "are paying closer attention to the arms of female celebrities," such as Demi Moore, Jennifer Anniston and Kelly Ripa.

But whose arms, you ask, do they admire most? That's right - those belonging to the first lady.

As physicians first and foremost, the plastic surgeons emphasized that to get a "look," diet and exercise should be the first thing potential patients consider to tone up arms. But that's not enough; "for many, getting the look they want proves impossible by those methods alone," the Times reported.

How about this? With serious diet and workouts, most of these women could probably develop arms the first lady would admire. But that's too much like work for the sycophantic Obama worshippers.

'Women are paying more attention to their arms'

"We are genetically programmed to have different accumulations of fat in different areas, and for some women the arms can be a problem area," Dr. David Reath, chair of the ASPS Public Education Committee and a surgeon in Knoxville, Tenn., said, adding that brachioplasty oftentimes leaves a visible scar, which must be considered a trade-off for women.

No matter, apparently.

"Women are paying more attention to their arms in general and are becoming more aware of options to treat this area," said ASPS President Gregory Evans, MD. "For some women, the arms have always been a troublesome area and, along with proper diet and exercise, liposuction can help refine them. Others may opt for a brachioplasty when there is a fair amount of loose skin present with minimal elasticity."

In recent years, those who are chronically unsatisfied with their bodies but unwilling to put in the time and effort to physically change it were big fans of "chin plants" - a more prominent chin - and facelifts for men.
