In many cases, weight loss is followed by the appearance of excessive skin. The most visible appearance of excessive skin is visible by rapid weight loss after obesity surgery.

It is a misconception that the appearance of flesh tissues is because of rapid weight loss, and the skin doesn’t have time to shrink. Usually, weight loss is followed by excessive skin/saggy flesh tissues, and this misleads us.

By observing the excessive skin on the body, we can notice that there is not only the skin, but also there is plenty of flesh beneath the skin.

Instead of using the term “excessive skin”, the more appropriate name would be “saggy fat tissues” or “saggy flesh tissues”.

The fat mass beneath the skin of the saggy fat/flesh tissues ranges from a few millimetres to a few centimetres thick.

The people who are affected with this condition can notice that when they are walking, on each step the saggy fat/flesh tissues are jiggling. The jiggling of the saggy fat/flesh tissues is a factor that maintains the fat mass and prevents the shrinking of the skin.

The jiggling of the saggy fat tissues is at the same time the factor that provides the mechanical stimulations to the saggy fat/flesh tissues.

In some cases, the jiggling of the saggy fat/flesh tissues is strong enough to produce mechanical stimulation above the level necessary for the maintenance of existing fat mass and in this case, the saggy fat tissues are exposed to excessive mechanical stimulation that has the consequence of building new fat mass in the saggy fat/flesh tissues…… [The full text of this article is in the book
