I also have never heard of men having an easier time of it with regards to excess skin after major weight loss.
I think distinctly about the runner-up in Season 2 of The Biggest Loser who had ripped abs but saggy skin just clumped and hanging at the belly button area.
I also admit to watching plastic surgery shows on tv and there have been numerous men who had to get a tummy tuck, etc. after major weight loss.
