The latest edition of Magazine Health & Wellbeing asked leading experts about burning health questions.
They asked Dr Ross Perry to help explain the issue of cellulite and whether or not readers should be worried about the health implications of this unsightly problem.
The article asked:
“Does cellulite on my body mean I’m unhealthy?”
Dr Ross Perry replied saying:
“Cellulite is the lumpy appearance of skin, most commonly found on the thighs, stomach and bottom area.
“Fat pushes between the connective tissue beneath the skin, making the skin pucker and look dimpled. Most women have cellulite of some description, or indeed will get it at some point in their lives, but having it does not mean you’re unhealthy.
“It’s a natural imperfection in the way the fat is contoured in certain areas.
“Cellulite is more prominent in those carrying excess weight and this can exacerbate the appearance of cellulite, as weight gain increases the volume of fat in the area.
“However, cellulite can also be found in slimmer women, so therefore is not an indicator of health or fitness.
“Genetics can quite often have a part to play in the appearance of cellulite. It’s also more common as we age when skin becomes less elastic, thinner and more likely to sag. These factors increase the chance of cellulite developing.”
