‘This fat can be found on all types of women, from las mas flaquitas to las mas gorditas. “It’s mostly hereditary,” says Steven Wallach, M.D., a plastic sur­geon in New York City. What causes those popcorn-like dimples? “They occur when the conjoined fibers that hold fatty tissue between layers of skin are pulled taut or slackened, allowing tiny pockets of fat to poke through”, says Dr. Wallach. “And while a healthy diet, regular exercise, and drinking plenty of water can diminish cellulite, there is no permanent cure.” But, he admits, “Losing surrounding fat may reduce its appearance.”
