There are two types of adipose (fat) tissue currently known: brown adipose tissue and white adipose tissue. Babies have brown adipose tissue to keep them warm but it is largely replaced by white adipose tissue in adults. Adipose tissue is found under the skin (subcutaneous fat) as well as beneath the abdominal muscles and around internal organs (visceral fat), such as the heart, liver and kidneys where it provides padding. In addition to adipocytes, fibroblasts, macrophages, endothelial cells and blood vessels form adipose tissue. UltraShape's sophisticated focused ultrasound delivers mechanical energy that disrupts only the adipose cells in the subcutaneous fat only, not the visceral fat. The different surrounding cells remain unharmed since they have a different susceptibility to mechanical energy.

The main function of adipose tissue is to act as a reserve for fat which can be burned to meet the body's energy requirements. Excess visceral body fat increases the risk of developing heart disease, diabetes and premature death. Body fat, not body weight, determines obesity. It is the distribution and amount of fat that determines whether it is good or bad for our health. A small portion of fat in the organs, skeletal muscles and central nervous system is essential fat that is necessary for normal function, so having too little fat is unhealthy. Women tend to deposit fat on the thighs and buttocks and men around the abdomen. It is important to exercise regularly to burn up calories, and monitor dietary caloric intake in order to lose weight successfully. The body mass index gives a good idea of the ideal weight range for a person's given height and weight. People with a BMI of 30 or more are considered obese; those with a BMI less then 19 are considered underweight. The ideal BMI is between 22 and 25.
