Obesity & gravity: Our bodies store excess fat in various parts of our bodies. When men have excessive abdominal fat, it's mostly in the abdominal cavity itself. Women, on the other hand, store much of this excess fat under the skin of the abdomen. At some point, the excess skin and fat will start to droop or sag, creating a fold. It's important to keep the area behind this fold clean and dry.
