What is cellulite?

Cellulite is an aesthetic condition that affects the skin, causing the appearance of irregularities such as dimples and ripples, typically in areas like the legs, thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and arms.

It occurs due to a combination of factors, including the accumulation of fat beneath the skin, changes in blood circulation, and alterations in collagen fibers.

Cellulite is more common in women than in men and can be influenced by factors such as genetics, diet, levels of physical activity, and hormones.

It’s important to note that, in the vast majority of cases, cellulite is a common occurrence and is not necessarily related to body volume and weight but rather pertains to what is considered a flawless silhouette.

Although it is generally not a serious medical condition, many people seek aesthetic treatments to reduce the appearance of cellulite, such as massages, creams, laser procedures, or surgeries.

However, there are medical conditions with different risks that, while not as common, should be taken into account in the analysis of each case.

Medicine and cellulite.

We provide some informative information here about medical conditions related to cellulite.

First, it is important to know the ICD codes for cellulite.

ICD-10 is the International Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a tool for standardizing the coding of diseases and other health-related issues.

The ICD for Cellulite is ICD 10-103, with the most well-known being ICD-10-L03.1 – cellulitis of other parts of the limb(s).

Among the types of medical conditions related to cellulite, we have infectious cellulitis and bacterial cellulitis.

What is infectious or inflammatory cellulitis?

Infectious cellulitis is a bacterial infection of the skin and subcutaneous tissues that causes inflammation, redness, heat, and localized pain. It usually occurs when bacteria enter the skin through a wound, insect bite, or injury.

What is bacterial cellulitis?

Bacterial cellulitis is an infection of the skin and subcutaneous tissues caused by bacteria, usually staphylococci or streptococci.

Infectious cellulitis, or bacterial cellulitis, is an infection of the deeper layers of the skin, which can develop in individuals with cuts or skin conditions, causing symptoms such as intense redness, pain, and swelling.

Unlike the popular cellulite, infectious cellulitis can cause serious complications such as sepsis.

An example in this medical category is orbital cellulitis, which is a bacterial infection that affects the tissues around the eye, including the eyelids, the eye socket, and the eye muscles.
