Gastric Bypass Surgery

One year ago I had a Roux-en Y, gastric bypass. I am very pleased with the results. I have lost 120 pounds and am at my goal weight. My skin, however, especially my arms and legs have really left quite a bit of sagging skin. Any suggestion, other than exercise (I work out with weights and cardio daily) that my help my skin to tighten? I realize that it is not possible to eliminate all the excess skin without surgery, however, I wish to exhaust all possiblities prior to that.

There is no decent cosmetic solution other than surgery if the condition is extreme - as it sounds like it is.
