Cellulite is a stubborn type of fat found just under the surface of the skin within connective tissue, giving a dimpled appearance. It is commonly found on women's buttocks, hips and thighs, and usually occurs after puberty. Anyone can have it regardless of their weight and/or size in large part due to inheritance.
What causes cellulite?
The real cause of cellulite is unknown, but contributing factors may include:
- Hormone treatments or use of certain medications (certain hormones like estrogen encourage the body to build up and store fat, increasing cellulite)
- Smoking: Smoking causes connective tissues to become stretched and broken, allowing underlying fat to push its way to the surface
- Weight gain: An increase in body weight will lead to an increase in fat tissue, making cellulite more apparent
