Magic wand: Unfortunately there is no way to effectively tighten skin, otherwise we would not have to perform tummy tucks, (witch hazel) face lifts, breast lifts, body lifts, etc. While there are a few technologies that can provide mild degrees of skin contraction it is not usually sufficient to achieve noticeable correction without risk

Skin thightening : Depending on the degree of elasticity and laxity of the skin some doctors are using skin thightening devices such as ultherapy by ultera. It has been fda approved for facial area but has been used of label for the abdomen. That said most cases will require a surgical procedure such as a tummy tuck if the laxity is severe! good luck!

Tummy tuck: The gold standard for removing excess loose abdominal skin is an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck. This is a surgical procedure with excellent results. To find out more, make a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon.
