You have to worry about the re-raiser and the person calling behind you who is still left to act, and that means you have to take extra precautions, and think twice before calling.
Yeah this is basically it.
Say a player opens for 3x BB and then gets flat called by another player, you then 3-bet over the top of the inital raise.
The first player (although may be holding a reasonable strength hand) cannot simply call as he has a player behind him who might be willing to go all in. He also can't really shove without a premium hand which is very rare. So he's likely to fold.
The second players range is a lot wide, usually a speculative hand which wouldn't do well in an all-in situation, and so they too are forced to fold.
