Does skin sag if you only had extra weight for a couple of months?

Maybe.: Gravity gets to all of us eventually, whether we have extra weight or not. Skin has to stretch before it can sag, and that usually doesn't happen quickly - but it can, if the extra weight is localized - to the breasts or stomach, for example. Most saggy skin due to weight loss resorbs by itself if it's not too extreme.
