Body silhouette is defined by skeleton framework, muscle masses and fat distribution. All these anatomical components are genetically fixed, related to growth hormones and sex hormones, and modified by extrinsic factors such as age, physical exercise, diet, constrictive garments, way of living and general health conditions.

As far as fat distribution is concerned, we recognise the subcutaneous and the central (visceral) fat.
