In brief: It doesn't

While losing weight will improve the general appearance of your body, it usually does not get rid of cellulite.
Even thin people have cellulite. Some of the fda approved treatments that reduce the appearance of cellulite are: smoothshapes, velashape and edermologie. These use suction and massage with laser or radiofrequency to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

In brief: It doesn't.

Cellulite is found in obese, overweight, and normal weight individuals.
Fat is not the cause of cellulite. It is a victim of cellulite. Cellulite is a complex problem involving the connective tissue that has origins in the hormonal influences, and derrangements in the lymphatic system and the microcirculation of the connective tissue leading to trapped fat cells in fibrous bands.

In brief: Cellulite is fat

With natural weight loss (by eating fewer calories and exercising more to use up stored fat), a person loses fat from all areas of his body.
So, to lose the cellulite, one must lose weight (fat) from throughout the body. Doing exercises to strengthen and build up the butt and thigh muscles can firm up the thighs, which will improve the appearance of the butt and legs.
