Cellulite or adiposis edematosa is one of the problems that many women are suffering in these days, especially adolescent and adult women. Cellulite is the normal fat (free – floating) beneath the skin and gives dimpled, lumpy appearance like cottage cheese or orange peel. It forms around the hips, thighs, buttocks and abdomen. This fat appears bumpy when you push against the connective tissues, causing the skin above it to pucker.
