SmartLipo for Tighter Skin
Your skin sags enough that I do think you could benefit from Smartlipo, as opposed to traditional liposuction. The arms are one of the best areas of the body for laser tightening with Smartlipo. I believe that the extra tightening boost from laser energy can give you more favorable results than liposuction on its own , and I always use it during liposuction. If you're still considering which method would be best, I certainly recommend seeing an experienced liposuction surgeon who offers Smartlipo for a more thorough assessment. Take a look at their before-and-after photos on the website to get a better idea of what the final results might be for you. Best of luck with your decision.

SmartLipo or No
Smart lipo for arms
You have an overall nice arm contour but I can see the area you are concerned about. SmartLipo is performed just as tumescent liposuction but with the addition of an internal laser treatment before suction to melt the fat and after to tighten the skin. You appear to have good quality skin with minimal fat and skin excess. With good skin tone some tightening is expected after traditional liposuction as the skin undersurface heals it retracts in.
Based on your photos you appear to be a good candidate for traditional liposuction of your arms. Smartlipo may give you a slightly more tightening but not necessarily. Talk with your surgeon about your concerns to make sure you are happy with your choice before proceeding.
Best of Luck!
SmartLipo is a type of tumescent lipo. Either will suit you well.
