Cellulite is a common problem that unfortunately cannot always be controlled or prevented. That’s because many times the occurrence of cellulite is genetic. And while a healthy diet and exercise plan can help reduce the appearance of cellulite, the truth is that most people have at least some cellulite present.

This fat can bulge up in between these bands, which creates the bumps and lumps you see on the thighs and buttocks. You may also notice a “dimpling” effect, which is dictated by the direction of the fibrous tissue.
