Have you noticed your upper body looking a little bulky but can’t quite put your finger on why? Or perhaps you’ve already seen some muscle building up in your trapezoids and want to know how you can slim it down?
The answer is Trapezius Slimming, and it’s an easy, safe and straightforward treatment that we provide here at Contour Clinics.
Why would you want to slim down your trapezius muscles?
While upper body exercises such as strength training, swimming, boxing and other resistance-based cardio or training can do wonders for the overall physique, it sometimes also means that you will accumulate muscle or heaviness in certain areas.
For some people, their trapezoids or ‘traps’ can bulk out and become more prominent, and this added bulk raises the area between the neck and the shoulder to sit higher. It shortens the neck and thickens the back, causing what is known as a ‘hulking’ effect.
Anyone favouring a more slender, refined or angular upper torso will likely be unhappy with how this bulkiness can detract from their elegance.
Many women believe that their muscular traps make them look stocky and less feminine, as their neck appears shorter, and this is unflattering to their décolleté.
Others believe bulky traps make them appear older, as though their posture is becoming hunched.
With all these reasons not to like bulky traps, it’s just as well that we can help patients who wish to combat this issue, with Trapezius Slimming.
