Cellulite is the bumpy, dimpled flesh that commonly appears on your hips, buttocks, thighs, and abdomen. It’s most common among teenage and adult women, and heredity is a factor. Cellulite isn’t a serious medical condition, but most women don’t like the way it looks and want to get rid of it.
Although the cause of cellulite is not fully understood, it becomes visible when fat cells accumulate beneath the skin and push up on the connective tissue, causing your skin to pucker. It looks like dimpled, uneven skin, and often gets worse with age as collagen production decreases and older connective tissue breaks down.
In addition to aging and heredity, other cellulite influences include:
Since diet and exercise are factors in whether cellulite develops, medical weight loss and nutritional coaching may help you, especially if you are overweight or know you need to learn to eat more healthy foods. Dr. Yohe and her highly qualified team of nutritional coaches assess your body type, weight loss goals, and nutritional needs, and offer individualized Ideal Protein weight loss program options.
For overweight adults, typically the most effective treatment for cellulite is losing extra pounds and toning your muscles. When you eat a balanced diet and get the proper nutrients and proteins, you decrease your overall body fat. As your fat decreases and you tone the muscle underneath, you may notice the cellulite diminishing.
In addition to an effective diet and weight loss plan, a variety of noninvasive treatments can lessen the appearance of cellulite including massage, laser, radiofrequency, ultrasound, and freezing therapies. If you want to get rid of cellulite, lose weight, and become a healthier, happier version of yourself, contact the Round Rock or Georgetown, Texas, Ideal Weight Loss locations, or schedule an appointment online.
