What is Cellulite?

Cellulite is the unsightly lumpy, dimpled skin appearance, also known as the ‘cottage cheese’ or ‘orange peel’ appearance. Cellulite consists of fat deposits that appear mainly on the hips, thighs and buttocks. Cellulite is probably one of the most aesthetically troubling concerns of women – it is estimated 80% of women over the age of 20, regardless of their weight or size are affected by cellulite.

What Causes Cellulite?

The skin’s connective tissue surrounds fat cells, which are arranged in chambers. The margins of these chambers contain septae. Over time, the fat cells increase in size and number. This phenomenon together with accumulation of localized edema, push the skin’s surface between the septae in an upward direction. This is what creates the lumpy and dimpled skin appearance, also known as the ‘cottage cheese’ appearance, associated with cellulite.
