WHAT IS CELLULITE?
Cellulite is a very common, harmless skin condition that causes lumpy, dimpled flesh on the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen, according to the Mayo Clinic.
The condition is most common in women, it added.
Many people try to improve the appearance of their skin through weight loss, exercise, massages and creams touted as cellulite solutions, with varying degrees of success.
Little is known about what causes cellulite. It includes fibrous connective cords that attach the skin to the underlying muscle, with fat lying between. As the fat cells accumulate, they push against the skin while the long, stiff cords are pulled down. This creates an uneven surface or a hole.
Medically proven treatment options are also available, although results are neither immediate nor long-lasting.

Two years ago, Teddi told fans to stop commenting on her stretch marks.
“It’s easy to get lost in how we perceive our bodies and others,” she wrote alongside a photo of herself in a bikini.
“Too often we forget about self-criticism and forget about the effort we put in to get here.”
And she works so hard to look toned that she doesn’t want nasty comments about stretch marks to ruin her day, she said.
“I can take pictures of myself with confidence in my bikini, but the reality is that there are stretch marks and loose skin,” she noted.
“I learned to love and embrace them because they tell my story.
“So today I’m heading to the beach feeling good about myself because that’s the only way it should be.
“With lots of SPF and Truly’s of course!”

One angry person shared: “You’re a public figure trying to help women lose weight and yet you get facelifts to remind those of us who need someone who can’t afford one how ugly we are. Thank you.”
Teddi responded by saying that it’s better if she’s honest with her fans.
“I’m transparent about my journey,” Mellencamp said.
“Would you rather lie and pretend the loose skin on my neck is gone? It is not me. If you only want to follow people who show themselves through a filtered version of themselves, then I’m not the person you should be following.”
The daughter of champion John Mellencamp and Victoria Granucci said she turned her life around seven years ago by being healthier, which helped her lose weight.
And she was more than happy to motivate others to get well.
However, she argued that she still shares her journey, which includes her admission that she has undergone plastic surgery.

“Do you appreciate me being open about my journey or would you rather I just pretend I didn’t do anything?” she asked.

She added that she was ‘100 transparent’ with her fans, so she wanted to let everyone know that the loose skin on her neck has always bothered her.
She tried botox, strings, fillers and nothing worked, she insisted.
“The way my neck is and with the loose skin, the only way to do it is to pull it up,” she said as she demonstrated how the skin was pulled up with her fingers.
“I could a million percent leave it,” she also said, but then shared that she didn’t want to leave it.
And she also said that she works with Dr. Sarmela Sunder, a plastic surgeon from Beverly Hills.

She also said that she has loose skin on her stomach, but she won’t change that. It just wants to fix the loose skin under the chin.
