Popular sites for body contouring include the hips, thighs, buttocks and abdomen. One reason for this is that the hips, thighs and buttocks are areas particularly prone to cellulite. Cellulite is a term used to define the puckered, dimpled or “orange-peel” like appearance of the skin often seen in these areas of the body. Cellulite typically begins to develop during or after puberty, so it is thought that estrogen plays a role in its development. Cellulite can manifest in women of all ages, races and body weight. Although weight gain can worsen the appearance of cellulite, it is noteworthy that even slender women can suffer from the appearance of cellulite. Thus, it is not surprising that the hips, thighs and buttocks are sites that are also popular targets for slimming treatment products.
