Default Is it extra pounds or loose skin?

Wasn't sure where to post this, so I thought I would start here.

Ok, so in the past 9 months I have lost almost 70 pounds, which is great, don't get me wrong. But, in my stomach area, it has become wrinkly and sagging a bit. I'm wondering...is there a way to tell if it's still fat that I need to lose, or is it loose skin that just hasn't snapped back into place yet? is there a way to tell?

I have a bit of a muffin top above my waist band, so I am trying desperately to lose, but if it's loose skin, is there anything that can be done? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

If you wait awhile and maintain the lower weight maybe the skin will re-drape. You could try compression like Spanx has, too.

I asked this question a while back and I didn't get a answer so I'm hoping someone responds to your question. I kind of ramble so the question prob got lost in my thread lmao.

I think some other members will be able to better speak to this than I can, but it's a good question and I'm curious to hear the responses.
