What is cellulite?

Medline plus defines cellulite as a fat deposited in pockets just below the surface of the skin. Closeness to skin surface gives it a dimpled, lumpy or orange peel like appearance. Cellulite is especially present around the hips, thighs, buttocks and abdomen.

Women, especially overweight, are more susceptible to cellulite accumulation. Fat cells are connected to the skin and underlying muscle layers with the help of collagen fibers.
Stretching, breaking down or pulling of collagen allows the fat cells to bulge out and lead to cellulite. Hormones, pregnancy and ageing all contribute to the weakening of the collagen fibers and cellulite appearance.
