Cellulite Features

Cellulite has an easily identifiable appearance, making your thighs take on the look of a dimpled orange, but it is nothing more than regular body fat. It gets its distinct appearance from body fat pressing upward against connective tissue that holds skin down. According to the American Council on Exercise, women are at greater risk for cellulite because their connective tissue is more tightly structured like a honeycomb, making it easier for thigh fat to bulge and appear dimpled. (See Reference 1). Women also tend to carry more excess body fat on their hips, thighs and butt, making the upper leg a common spot for cellulite to develop.

Loose Skin

Losing weight can make you feel better physically and emotionally, but can also leave you with extra sagging skin. This is especially true if you lose a significant amount of weight in a relatively short time. Your skin that once had to cover a large thigh, now covers a much smaller leg. Increasing age leads to decreasing skin health — firm youthful skin gives way to thinner, weaker skin. MedlinePlus says that as you get older changes to connective tissue can reduce skin’s elasticity and strength, especially in areas exposed to the sun like your thighs
