You do have some fat to the upper arms which can be liposuctioned. However, it seems as though you would also need extra skin removed to achieve a much tighter upper arm. I think with liposuction alone, you maybe left with some loose skin afterwards. I think performing liposuction and arm lift in the same procedure can achieve far superior results in most people than either procedure alone.
My suggestions would be as follows....Continue on your amazing weight loss journey! The more fat you are able to lose from your arms the better result you will have in the end. Visit a couple of board certified plastic surgeons so you can be evaluated in person to determine the best surgical plan for you. Also, by visiting a few plastic surgeons, you can get a good idea on the cost of surgery and this will allow you to start saving money to one day have this procedure.
I wish you all the best!

How do I get rid of this upper arm fat?
It looks like you are a good candidate for arm lifting surgery for removal of the excess skin and adipose tissue of the upper arm.
The arm lifting procedure is a great procedure to remove excess skin and adipose tissue of the upper arms. However, this procedure carries a major drawback: difficult scarring that may require scar revision (more so, in my experience, then other procedures).
I have tried placement of the resulting scars in the bicipital groove (between the biceps and triceps muscles) as well as a long the inferior–lower aspect of the upper arm. I have found higher patient satisfaction with the latter approach.
Best to seek consultation with board-certified plastic surgeons who can demonstrate significant experience achieving the types of outcomes you will be pleased with. You may find the attached link, dedicated to arm lifting surgery concerns, helpful to you as you learn more. Best wishes.
