Body Disharmony Syndrome - BDS
The Body Disharmony Syndrome
There is a group of alterations that affect the body aesthetics, which we call “Body Disharmony Syndrome” – BDS. These alterations were described for the first time by Miguel Francischelli Neto, MD, PhD, Head of the Naturale Clinic and they were based on his researches on human aesthetics.
This Syndrome is characterized by the presence of Cellulite, Alterations of the Body Fat and Muscular Alterations that frequently appear associated.
Then, the whole Body Composition is really what determines the body form, it should be considered as the maintenance and recovery of the Body Harmony.
The Cellulite, the Muscular Alterations (Tonus and Mass) and the Alterations of Body Fat (Weight Excess, Fat Excess, Localized Fat and Regionalized Fat) have a role in the Body Disharmony, with different intensities for each patient and they should be treated altogether, but in a personalized way, with a treatment program drawn for each patient. In these writings we will discuss the causes of BDS and the bases of treatment.
The Cellulite, whose medical name is Hydrolipodystrophy, is not only fat excess, it is modified fat, that has edema (water), and that suffers the influence of the feminine’s hormones, even the normal ones . It is one of the most common complaints from patients that look for our Clinic for the recovery of the body shape there are several causes.
Alterations of the Body Fat
The Fat Excess can be shown in 4 different ways, which may occur separately or associated:
Weight Excess: the patient has weight above the normal that is reflected in a different way depending on the amount of muscle the patient has. He can have weight and Fat Excess with normal or increased muscular mass, or weight and fat excess, with reduced muscular mass, that is the worst possible situation.
Excess of Fat in the Body Composition: the patient has a large proportion of fat when compared to the thin tissues (muscles, organs and bones); this can happen with or without Weight Excess, therefore, even thin patients can have Fat Excess in the body composition, with aesthetic alterations of his body shape, which are called the "thin / fat."
Regionalized Fat: it is the fat that is deposited in the women, preferentially in the area of the hip and of the thigh. It can happen in patients with Weight Excess, with normal weight, with low weight, and even in athletes, with little fat in the body (what happens, is that the small quantity of fat that exists is located in a certain place, in the woman usually in the hip and thigh). It is different from the Localized Fat because it is not characterized by a projection; it is a fat distributed in a homogeneous way.
Localized Fat: the Localized Fat is a fat projection in a certain place, for instance, in the outer thighs, or in the Belly. You should not confuse the Localized Fat with the other forms of fat excess. (Weight Excess, Fat Excess in Body Composition, Regionalized Fat)
What gives shape to the body, it is not the fat but the muscle!
In the Body Disharmony Syndrome the muscles can be altered in two different ways
Impairment of the Muscular Mass: a small amount of muscles exists
Atony: the muscle is present in good amount, but it is flaccid.
The Combined Treatment of the Body Disharmony Syndrome - What to do????
There is a large offer of available treatments for correction of the body aesthetic alterations. At a first, the patient feels lost among so many options published in the media. Is it better a diet or some Exercises? Is it better a liposuction or the Lipolytics applications? What kind of exercise? What kind of diet? Which machine is better, Carboxitherapy? Endermology? Russian stimulation? And the first question is: What to do? How to do?
As the alterations of the Body Disharmony Syndrome are several, the treatment should also be addressed for each one of the alterations, this way, we perform a combined treatment where most of the methods can be used, but in a personalized way for each patient. In the treatment description we will discuss with more details each one of the methods and indications, but in the table below we can find a summary of the alterations of the Body Disharmony Syndrome and the treatments that are part of the program Corpore Naturale .
