Cellulite is a structural skin change that occurs in most post-pubertal females whether they are thin or overweight. Cellulite can occur in women of all ages and tends to become more visible with age. Over time, the skin loses its thickness and thereby enhances the visibility of the unsightly cellulite bumps.
It presents itself as texture irregularity in the skin such as dimpling and nodules. These areas are usually localized to the pelvic region, lower limbs, and abdomen. The underlying cause is the loss of connective tissue integrity and herniation of subcutaneous fat within fibrous connective tissue.
The skin’s connective tissue surrounds fat cells, which are arranged in chambers. This phenomenon plus the 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.
