Cellulite as a medical and aesthetic problem – etiopathogenesis, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment

Cellulite is one of the most common lipodystrophy, which affects about 85%  of  women  over  20  years  of  age.  Differences  in  the  structure  of fatty  lobules  between  men  and  women  mean  that  women’s  cellulite occurs much more frequently and with greater severity.

Two types of cellulite are determined

  • hard, called the water cellulite
  • a soft, called fat  cellulite.
