compartments of obese women contain more adipocytes than those of leaner women in a sex-specific manner not seen in men (34).
Men usually seek liposuction to minimise the size of the abdomen, thighs, gynaecomastia and chin, and women seek liposuction mostly for their abdomen, gluteofemoral
areas and their back.
Furthermore, studies have also 'shown that a preferential accumulation of body fat in the gluteofemoral
region, initially described by Vague under the term "gynoid obesity," and commonly found in premenopausal women, is not a major threat to cardiovascular health (27).
Specific fat cells, known as gluteofemoral
adipose tissue (GAT) cells, are relatively slower to naturally breakdown stored fat, making them especially resistant to diet and exercise.
