What Can Be Done to Tighten Skin on my Lower Legs?

The skin on my lower legs (Calf and knees) is loose. I have lost more than half my body weight over a 3 year period by exercise and diet. I consulted more than one plastic surgeon who indicated that there is not much surgically can be done for the lower legs. I am considering radio frequency, laser and ultrasonic methods that claim to skin tightening (w/o much said for lower legs). Which of the non-invasive methods for skin tightening are most likely to give me the fastest and best results for my legs?

The areas you  are describing are one of the most difficult to treat.   Surgery often does not work.  Having no photo to comment on, I would suggest you look into RF treatments for skin tightening and fat reduction(TruSculpt) or SkinTyte treatments using the Sciton System which is a deep, intense infrared system.
