In brief: Heat

Different devices such as skin tyte, thermage, viora, exilis, or ultherapy heat and stimulate collagen to develop delayed skin tightening.
Treatment sessions vary with device from one up to 4 or more. This is suitable for neck, abdomen, underarms. Fees vary by office. There is no downtime.

In brief: Ask your doctor

Your question isn't clear. Some procedures are surgical, like a tummy tuck.
These require anesthesia, incisions and some recovery. There are non invasive ways of improving/tightening the skin as well including lasers, peels, and unique treatments like ulthera, which uses ultrasound to tighten up the skin. The best modality depends on the area of the body, your physicians experience, etc.
