Thank you for the photos and from them alone without an examination you appear to be a good candidate for liposuction
Arm Lift vs Arm Liposuction
Hello and thank you for your question and photos.
Judging from your photos alone, you would benefit greatly from, and have great results with arm liposuction alone. You are young and your skin elasticity is more than likely very sound. The liposuction will remove the bulk that bothers you and leave you with a more tone arms. The full brachioplasty will leave you with scars that I feel at this time can be avoided.
Only a consult in person can fully determine the truest and best course of action. Please see a board certified plastic surgeon when moving forward.
All the best!

Liposuction or brachioplasty?
Based on your age and your photos, it appears you have good skin tone that should shrink considerably enough for liposuction and give you an acceptable result. It is the least invasive procedure, leaves the smallest scars, and will not preclude doing a brachioplasty if needed in the future. In other words, you won't "burn a bridge". Once you do the brachioplasty, you have committted to a long, permanent scar.
Confused after three consult and three different opinions..
From the pictures, you posted, it appears that liposuction would give you excellent results. You might consider adding something that can improve skin tightening, such as Vaser (ultrasonic energy liposuction), or laser liposuction. Our office uses Vase and I have been impressed with the skin tightening that occurs compared to traditional liposuction.
you look like you have good skin tone. You would have a great result with Liposuction in the hands of an experienced practitioner
You may be best off just trying some liposuction to begin with, which can give great results with minimal scar. There's always a risk the skin won't shrink back, but given your age it might and then you can avoid a big scar. If the skin is looser after lipo, then it would be worth the scar. It doesn't look like you have enough loose skin to justify a big scar right now. Continue to seek the advice of board certified plastic surgeons. Good luck!
Slim Lipo Lipolysis gives a skin tightening
think that liposuction alone will give you a good result.
wouldn’t advise a brachioplasty.
lipo lipolysis gives a skin tightening and I think this would be the best
VASER Hi Definition Liposuction / Body Contouring
You would do amazingly well with VASER HI DEF to the arms. I suggest looking at some of my photos on yelp and considering the options as you have nice skin and fat that can be removed and contoured without surgery. Best, Dr. Emer.
Liposuction, Minimally Invasive Arm Lift, or Brachioplasty?
I think that you will likely notice a dramatic improvement with liposuction alone with the appropriate surgeon.

Thank you for your question and photos. I think that at this point in your life, you should consider liposuction of your arms over a brachioplasty, which would leave you with unsightly scars.
All the best
