The authors, analyzed the metabolic profile of adipose tissue, supply a functional classification of the same one in 'Depot' fat and 'Essential' fat. An exact anatomical distribution looks to correspond to this one functional distinction, with consequent effects in terms of Liposuction on these body regions. The 'Essential' adipose tissue looks to play an important task about metabolic functions that, up to date, are not completely explained. The authors retain that an analogical study between the human 'Essential' adipose tissue and the animal 'Brown' fat would bring a substantial contribution to the comprehension of these functions.
