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!
Starting over since having my twin girls:

Long Term Goal

One for every 5 lbs lost:

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.
