Doctors have now spoken the bitter truth that there is no remedy for cellulite. It is better the cellulite endowed women just learn to live with them, rather than going after these so-called miracle cures.

American plastic surgeon John Kitzmiller, who conducted the study, said: "Approximately 85 per cent of women are affected by cellulite. It is not specific to overweight people, but excess weight may make it worse. We found that weight loss in overweight patients improved the appearance of cellulite, but for a few, it actually worsened the condition."

He went on to say "Although the appearance of cellulite diminished for the majority of patients, weight loss did not totally eradicate the condition. The dimples appear to be permanent features that lessen in depth as the pounds come off."
