Cellulite is a very common, harmless skin condition that causes lumpy, dimpled flesh on the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen. As fat cells increase, they push up against the skin while the long, tough cords pull down. This creates an uneven surface or dimpling, often referred to as cellulite.
By reducing the amount of fat cells, this will reflect on the appearance of cellulite.
What causes cellulite?
The fat cells in our body are surrounded by the connective tissues of the skin. These cells are contained in chambers. When the fat cells increase in number or size, the skin’s surface is pushed between these chamber margins, causing the lumpy appearance. With ageing and loss of skin volume, the skin is thinned and pulled down more, causing the lumpy areas to become more noticeable. Another reason that makes the cellulite cells more prominent is rapid weight gain and loss that affects the elasticity of the skin.
Contrary to popular belief, cellulite does not just affect people of a certain weight. Anyone can show signs of cellulite, irrespective of their age, weight, or gender.

There are both surgical and non-surgical options available to treat cellulite with similar results.
