Skin has the wonderful ability to shrink when it has been stretched: it can adapt to a new, slim situation, e.g. after weight loss or pregnancy. However, this ability has its limits: If it has been overstretched, it behaves like an elastic band that has been pulled too much: it loses its elasticity and can no longer adapt to the new situation. Then it hangs and no longer fits the new inner silhouette. Such an apron cannot simply be taken off. Plastic surgery is in demand.
