Dermopanniculosis deformas sounds like an incurable, almost fatal disease. However, it is the good old "cellulite".

Cellulite is a widespread change in the so-called subcutaneous fat tissue, i.e. the subcutaneous fat tissue, in your thighs and your buttocks area. 

The subcutaneous fatty tissue is the lowest tissue of the three skin layers and has important tasks. 

It consists of closed connective tissue chambers that are filled with few or many fat cells. The fat is either absorbed into the cells directly from the blood or formed directly in the cell from carbohydrates. 

The fat content of the subcutaneous tissue varies from person to person. The decisive factors are gender and general physical condition. 

But hormonal factors such as the pill or pregnancy can also affect the fat content of your cells. 

The sub-fatty tissue is invariably located near blood vessels, so each fat lobe has its own blood supply. The reason for this is that when there is an excess of fat, the blood can quickly transfer the "excess" fat to the tissue and store it. The other way around, this fat can be broken down again. 

Since fat has a very high calorific value (higher than protein or carbohydrates), depot fat is a particularly high-quality energy store. 

Because subcutaneous tissue has the property of binding water, this skin layer is an important partner for the water balance of our body.

Furthermore, the deformable connective tissue chambers are different in size and thus enable the skin to be moved flexibly against a base.

In addition, our adipose tissue protects our body from hypothermia.


For the "texture" of our adipose tissue, you can therefore go close to nothing. As with many things that directly affect our body, our genetics and health are most important. Especially with us women, there are additional factors such as pregnancy or hormonal contraception, for example.

It’s a little easier for the lords of creation.

Still, men can get cellulite too.

As already mentioned, cellulite is only an externally visible change. It has no health impact on us.

Should you still feel bothered by the smaller dents, there are many treatment options:

  • Reduction of the body fat percentage (exercise, healthy diet or "fat-way injection" 
  • Micro-needling to improve the surface of the skin
  • Lymphatic drainage
  • Sea salt baths
  • Body wraps with bandages tighten the tissue
