Cellulite is the dimpled appearance of your skin that some people develop on their thighs, buttocks and hips. It is more commonly found in women than man due to the differences in connective tissues, muscles, and fat under the skin. It is medically known as edematous fibrosclerotic panniculopathy (EFP).
Cellulite is no way related to the condition called cellulitis that is a kind of bacterial infection or inflammation of the tissues and skin.
The dimpled formation of cellulite is usually considered something normal that many people can have. The thickness of skin, the distribution of body fat, age and hereditary factors that can affect the extent of cellulite presence. It occurs due to shortening or shrinkage of fibrous tissue cords that anchor your skin. Though female hormones have a role in the contribution of fat distribution, it cannot be treated with hormone therapy.
Cellulite causes lumpy appearance and dimpling of your skin, leading to an "orange peel" appearance. It is most commonly found in the abdomen, buttocks and hips. Sometimes it takes place in the breasts, belly or upper arms. If there is mild cellulite, the dimpling is not visible unless the skin gets pinched.
Cellulite is usually considered to be a kind of cosmetic problem. The visible signs of cellulite are sufficient to confirm that you are suffering from it. However, there aren’t any diagnostic tests for it.
Since cellulite falls under cosmetic problem, aesthetic physicians, dermatologists and plastic surgeons may offer some kind of treatment for it.
Cellulite is more commonly found in women than men. If you have a family history of cellulite, then this is another risk factor that you might develop the disease. Besides, pregnancy and inactive life may increase your chances of developing this disease.
