Hi flgal51,

It seems that you are looking to "tone and firm" various areas of your body and to do this will require a multidiscipline approach. There are many lasers used for skin tightening so I would suggest an evaluation for this non-invasive procedure in addition to nutritional counseling and exercise. If you are interested in a more invasive treatment then liposuction may be considered.
