Moreover, the fat reserve in women tends to accumulate preferentially in the gluteofemoral
region, while in men it accumulates in the central region of the body (19).
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).
Waist-hip ratio and cognitive ability: Is gluteofemoral
fat a privileged store of neurodevelopmental resources?
In this study there was a significant reduction in the diameter of adipocytes, especially in the gluteofemoral
region and a decrease in inter-adipocyte fibrosis," Dr.
Isto ocorre devido a taxa lipolitica ser mais alta no tecido subcutaneo abdominal do que no tecido adiposo gluteofemoral
, presente especialmente em mulheres (Bouchard, 2003).
