Cellulite describes a condition that occurs mainly in women (up to 90%), although may occur in men as well, where the skin surface of the lower limbs, more frequently the thighs, hips and buttocks, but also abdomen and pelvic region becomes dimpled after puberty, due to fat accumulation in the subcutaneous tissue. It is known casually as “cottage cheese” or “orange peel” skin. It is not specific to overweight women although increased fatty tissue load will deteriorate the condition.
