Liposuction – although many people think that liposuction will help remove cellulite, it actually just removes excess fat, leaving the cellulite behind. Liposuction removes deposits of fat resistance to exercise and diet, but does not affect the dermal layer of the skin where cellulite is caused.

Cellulite

At some point in their lives, most women – and some men – are bothered to a degree by cellulite, the lumpy substance that makes skin on the thighs and buttocks look like cottage cheese. Although its name may make it sound like a medical condition, cellulite is nothing more than normal fat beneath the skin. The fat appears bumpy because it pushes against the connective tissue beneath the skin, causing the skin above it to pucker. Although the cellulite is not harmful, many women are willing to go to great lengths to get rid of cellulite, creating a big market for cellulite creams and other treatments promising smooth thighs and buttocks.

 

Cellulite causes

Even though cellulite is fat, having it doesn’t mean you are overweight. Even thin people can have cellulite. If you are overweight, however, losing weight may reduce cellulite. Being a woman makes you more likely to develop cellulite. Genes also play an important role. If other women in your family have cellulite, there’s a good chance you will too. Other factors that influence the amount of cellulite you have and how visible it is include;  Poor diet, Fad diet in, Slow metabolism, Lack of physical activity, Hormone change, Dehydration, Total body fat,The thickness and colour of your skin

 Cellulite vs Cellulitis.

Cellulite is a cosmetic problem caused by fatty deposits that form underneath the skin. It is not related to cellulitis. Losing weight, if you’re overweight, is the best way of dealing with cellulite.

 

Causes of cellulitis

Cellulitis can have a wide range of causes, but the majority of cases are caused by group A streptococcal infections or staphylococcal infections. In rarer cases, it may be caused by a fungal infection. Cellulitis develops when bacteria or fungi move down through the skin’s surface through a damaged or broken area of skin, such as a cut, burn or bite. Having a skin condition such as eczema or a fungal infection of the foot or toenails (athlete’s foot) can cause small breaks and cracks to develop in the surface of the skin. This makes a person more vulnerable to cellulitis.

Treating cellulitis

Cellulitis usually responds well to treatment with antibiotics if it’s diagnosed and treated promptly. As a precaution, hospital admission is usually recommended for more severe cases of cellulitis that fail to respond to antibiotic tablets. Once you have recovered you can usually be treated with antibiotics at home or as an outpatient.   Complications In some cases of cellulitis the bacteria triggers a secondary infection somewhere else in the body, such as in the blood (septicaemia). Blood poisoning can be life-threatening and often requires hospital admission for treatment with intravenous antibiotics (antibiotics given directly into a vein).   Other complications can include:

  • abscesses
  • necrotising fasciitis – a rare bacterial infection of the deep layer of skin that causes the affected tissue to die
  • facial cellulitis – which can lead to meningitis if untreated

 

Who is affected?

Cellulitis can affect people of all ages, including children. Rates are thought to be roughly similar in both sexes. In 2012, around 50,000 people were admitted to hospital in England as a result of cellulitis.

 

Cellulitis

Cellulitis causes the affected area of skin to turn red, painful, hot and swollen

The skin

The skin is the largest organ of the human body, made up of three main layers:

  • the epidermis – the outer surface of skin and an underlying section of cells, which the body uses to create new skin cells
  • dermis – the middle layer of skin that contains blood vessels, sweat glands and hair follicles
  • subcutis – the bottom layer of skin that consists of a layer of fat and collagen (a tough, spongy protein), which helps protect the body and regulate temperature
