Localised fat overloads

These are greasy masses, which deform the body. This is different from obesity which is a generalised fat overload.

 

In women, it is mainly the neck, the inner side of the arms, the axilla, the abdomen, the flanks, the “hips”, the "breeches", the inner thighs, the knees, the calves. In man, these localised overloads mainly affect the neck, the abdomen, the flanks, the lumbar region and the breasts.

Cellulite

 

It mostly affects women and is slightly different. The fatty mass is trapped in fibrosis more or less important to a problem of lymphatic drainage and therefore oedema.

 

The appearance of permanent orange peel is the culmination of the development of cellulite. Cellulite evolves in 4 stages:

  • stage 0: cellulite is not visible. There is just an increase in the skin fold.

  • stage 1: the dimples are visible only when the skin is pinched, the cellulite is light.

  • stage 2: when the orange peel skin is seen standing, without having to pinch the skin.

  • cellulite is even lying down.

 

There may be other symptoms such as a feeling of constriction and heaviness in the legs, a sensitivity to pressure and sometimes cramps.

What is the origin of cellulite?

There are causes for which nothing can be done. This is the case for female sex hormones and heredity ("breeches").

 

But there are also acquired causes:

  • A diet too rich in fat promotes the storage of triglycerides in adipocytes. Too much food, especially during childhood increases the risk of cellulite in adolescence and adulthood.

  •  The sedentary lifestyle favours the fat compared to the muscles.

  • Clothes too tight

  • Psychological factors, stress

  • Smoking

  • Antidepressant drugs
