Cellulite is a term used to describe areas of the body where there is visible accumulation of fat that has a dimpled or textured look akin to orange peel. It is a predominantly female problem and starts to show at puberty upwards. Even slim women can be affected by it. It is most often found around the thighs, buttocks, upper arms and abdomen.
There are many causes for cellulite:
- excess/surge of estrogen especially at puberty or older, which can lead to fat accumulation and water retention.
- poor circulation that leads to accumulation of lymphatics and toxins
- anatomical characteristics of connective tissue partitioning of adipose tissue in women that gives rise to the dimpled look when fat gets compressed against the skin
- loss of skin elasticity and support making the bulges of fat deposits more obvious
