Tens of thousands of viewers have asked him medical questions, and now Dr. Mehmet Oz is ready with answers. When asking Dr. Oz a question, nothing is off limits!

What is cellulite? Do all women get it? How do we make it go away?

Dr. Oz says that if you have cellulite, point the finger at your family tree—the way your body stores fat is genetic. He says that fat cells, when they're doing their job, suck in as much fat as they can and then grow larger.

"It looks like a huge marshmallow," Dr. Oz says. "And these marshmallows begin to touch each other. And as they touch each other, they begin to push bigger and bigger and bigger molds of this stuff. … You put all this together, guess what happens? Cellulite."
