You may have heard the term “FUPA” to refer to the effects of aging and childbirth on the pelvic area in women. The term is an acronym that stands for “fatty upper pubic area,” and it is a reality that many women experience as they get older. Not only does the lower abdomen develop a sagging, flabby appearance as fat increases and skin loosens, but the pubic area itself can also suffer the ravages of time.
The section of torso, both front and back, that is covered by a bra is often a target for unwanted fat deposits and droopy, sagging skin. As collagen levels in the skin decrease, the skin loses its youthfully tight and smooth appearance, resulting in wrinkles and sags. In addition to the natural progression of aging, having children and breastfeeding can also cause changes to the breasts that cause them to lose their perky appearance.
Flabby upper arms are a source of embarrassment for many women, to the point that they may even avoid cocktail parties, beach events, and wearing short sleeves in general, making summertime a difficult season and causing their social lives to suffer.
