Cellulite is the herniation of subcutaneous fat within the fibrous connective tissue of the skin that manifests as skin dimpling and nodularity, giving rise to the so called “orange peel” effect.
It is most common in women with a prevalence of 85% or more, indicating that it is a physiologic rather than a pathological condition.
It is most commonly found on the pelvic region, especially on the buttocks as well as the thighs and abdomen. It can be caused by a complex combination of factors ranging from hormones to genetics.
There are different grades or severity of cellulite. Grade O is when there is no visible dimpling even when skin is pinched, Grade I is when there is visible dimpling when skin is pinched, Grade 2 is visible dimpling seen when standing up but not lying down and Grade 3 is visible dimpling seen, both when one is standing up and lying down.
