Myth: Only overweight people develop cellulite

This is totally false, saysEllen Marmur, MD, dermatologist at Marmur Medical, and an associate clinical professor of dermatology at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City.Even models have cellulite. Exactlywhat causes celluliteis unknown, but genes and hormones likely play a role. Cellulite occurs when fat cells push up against the skin over the fibrous connective tissue bands that tether the skin to the underlying muscle. The fat cells push up against the skin, while the bands pull down, creating the dimpling effect, she explains. While fat is involved, it isnota cause. That said, when we gain weight, the fat swells and the anchors do not stretch, so the dimpling appears worse.
