What is an Android/Gynoid Biotype?

The Gynoid fat pattern is characterized by the accumulation of excess fat around the hip, buttocks, and thigh regions. 

Excess Gynoid fat patterns will have a 'pear' shape appearance, where the buttocks and hips are much larger than the waist. 

This type of distribution is typical for females. Gynoid fat is usually stored under the skin and above the muscle.


Android fat storage describes the distribution of fat mostly around the trunk/abdomen area or the upper body, typical in males (and post-menopausal females). 

Those exhibiting excess Android fat patterns will have an 'apple' shape appearance.
