Materials and Methods: A total of 68 women willing to reduce fat on their gluteal-femoral regions participated in the study. Three different methods were adopted for the participants divided into three groups for regional weight loss in line with the medical advice of the center they consulted.

Conclusion: It was found out that the methods adopted proved to be factors contributing to a significant decrease in total body fat, regional fat mass and cellulite of all participants.
