Cellulite & Stretch Marks
Cellulite is caused by a buildup of fat underneath the skin. The amount of cellulite you have and how noticeable it is can be based on your genes, body fat percentage, and age. The thickness of your skin also affects the appearance of cellulite.
Cellulite is a very common skin condition that causes lumpy, dimpled flesh on the thighs, hips, buttocks, breasts, upper arms and abdomen. The condition is more prevalent in women.
Cellulite is much more common in women than in men partially because women’s fat is typically distributed in the thighs, hips and buttocks which are common areas for cellulite. Cellulite is also more apparent with aging, when the skin loses elasticity.
Weight gain can make cellulite more noticeable, although lean people often have cellulite as well. Additionally, pregnancy is a common cause of cellulite due to the weight gain and hormonal changes that cause skin laxity.
