Will Weight Loss Make Cellulite Worse?

Cellulite worse or better after weight loss
Many people note that their cellulite looks less visible after weight loss. As they gain weight, there is distension of the fatty tissue pushing upwards and the skin pulls on the fibers that vertically or diagonally hold the skin down to the underlying muscle creating a mattress-like button effect.
Will Weight Loss Make Cellulite Worse
Cellulite is simply normal fat beneath the skin. It is caused by rubber-band-like connective tissues under the skin that compress the fat into dimples. The fat appears bumpy because it pushes against connective tissue, causing the skin above it to pucker.
Exercise, and, if needed, #weight loss which are among healthy lifestyle practices, are helpful while attempting to prevent or eliminate #cellulite. Experts agree that the most the effective exercise routine for cellulite is one that incorporates #aerobic.
Other factors that influence cellulite and it's visibility include:
• Poor #diet
• Fad dieting
• Slow #metabolism
• Lack of physical #activity
• #Hormone changes
• Total body #fat
• Thickness and color of your #skin
However, having cellulite does not imply one is overweight. Thin people can also have it. If one is overweight, perhaps, losing weight may reduce cellulite.
There are many #products and #treatments that promise to get rid of cellulite on #thighs and #buttocks. But there is little evidence that shows that many of them work well or for long. Clinical treatments offer the most #effective and longest lasting results. We can now offer improvements that should last at least 2-3 years. I recommend three different #procedures: #ThermiSmooth, #VelaShape 3, and #Cellfina.
Weight can effect cellulite
Some feel as though weight loss may make the cellulite appear more than normal. It would be best to learn more about Cellulaze, the first long-lasting cellulite reduction procedure. Consult with your surgeon to find out if you are a good candidate for Cellulaze.

Weight changes and cellulitis
Weight changes can affect cellulite in different ways for different patients. To treat your cellulite, you may want to consider cellulaze.
Cellulaze is a FDA approved one time treatment that utilizes a 1440 nm wavelength laser to accomplish 3 things: 1) melt away fat bulging out 2) break up fibrous septae (attachments) that create the indentations and 3) help thicken the dermis (skin) to prevent future recurrence. The procedure can take between 60-90 minutes and can be completed under local or just IV sedation (depending on the length of your procedure and number of areas being treated). To see your final results takes between 3-6 months. You can visit the cellulaze . com website to learn more about the procedure and find a plastic surgeon who performs the procedure near you. Best of luck!
Weight Loss and Cellulite
Cellulite is due to intemittant thinning of the skin dermis leading to fat bulges
Cellulite is due to intemittant thinning of the skin dermis leading to fat bulges. It has very little to due with the weight of a person. Even very highly toned female atheletes have cellulite. Losing weight will reduce the amount of fat under the skin and usually make the skin look better.
Weight loss and cellulite
While there is no research, clinically I would say that the appearance of cellulite might well be worse after weight loss. All you can do is lose the weight and see.
