Question Loose skin questions

There seems to be a lot of conflicting information when it comes to loose skin after massive weight loss. Does resistance training, keto dieting and eating gelatine remove excess skin or is someone who is obese and fixes their body just stuck in a droopy sack for the rest of their lives?
