Is this loose skin or Fat under the skin?

Is this just loose Skin or Fat that needs to be burn off. Would I need surgery at 25 for this? These are pictures of my arms and thighs....

Hard to tell but appears to be due to fat. Loose skin sort of drapes.

Only a doctor can say for sure, but I have to agree with Titchou.

Re: Is this loose skin or Fat under the skin?

I think it is a little of both. I recently lost about 80 pounds and I think I still have about 15 to 20 pounds to go, but I have several areas that look similar. Some areas of my body are very toned and others look very similar. My arms have lots of muscle in them but they also look like yours, despite very easy to see biceps and triceps, which makes the extra skin less obvious. So I would say both. However, when it comes to loose skin, best thing to do is to gain as much muscle mass as possible and try to make your skin as healthy as possible and wait. That is about as much as you can do without surgery or some very extreme measures.
