Default Dog size Female vs. Male

I am curious about something with regards to dog sizes. I have read here a lot that it would be unhealthy for a dog to be over the standard in weight. What I am curious about is what makes an 80lb female less healthy than a 88lb male? I know the female standard is smaller, but would a female that is over the standard but still less than the standard of a male have more health issues than the male?
