AESTHETIC MEDICINE

Definition A popular term for cosmetically undesirable subcutaneous layered fat which causes peau d’orange-like dimpling of the skin surface of the buttocks, thighs and hips.

Comment Cellulite is not an accepted medical term, either clinically or pathologically, as histologic examination reveals “garden variety” fat and adipocytes  

Management Cut fibrous tissue that binds the fat and creates the lumpiness, then inject fat removed elsewhere to smooth the contours.
