Let’s Get Technical On Cellulite

CelluliteThe deposits of fat that everyone has in their body can be divided into two main camps, visceral and subcutaneous. Visceral fat surrounds your major organs. Many people refer to Visceral fat as the dangerous fat, linked to a higher risk of heart disease and diabetes. This is the fat the can only be reduced through “healthy life style”, i.e. eating well and exercising regularly.

Subcutaneous fat is different entirely, this is the fat that is closer to the surface and can be reduced through a “healthy life style”. Alternative ways to remove subcutaneous fat is via liposuction or non-surgical liposuction (body contouring).

Cellulite is a bit different to regular Subcutaneous fat, cellulite appears in the layer of Subcutaneous fat that is closest to the skin.

If the volume of fat in this container of connective tissue, the top will bulge under pressure causing the dimpled effect we associate with cellulite.
