Fat Morphology

Fat Morphology 2

Fat Morphology 2

Fat below the skin (subcutaneous fat or adipose tissue) is organized into predictable partitions by collagen sheets of fibrous tissue (septa). Fat has a number of functions that include:

  1. Store caloric energy
  2. Temperature insulation
  3. “Shock absorber” for minor trauma
  4. Provide the body shape and contour

Fat Section

A large cross section of fat can be sub-divided into fat sections by tangentially and obliquely oriented septae. Blood vessels, lymphatics and sensory nerves are located within the fibrous dividers that partition the fat into fat sections.

Fat Pearl

Fat pearls are a subunit of the fat section. Fat pearls can vary in size in different anatomical areas and seem to increase with varying levels of obesity.

Fat Lobule

Each fat lobule has a separate nerve, small artery and vein. This is a grouping of fat cells that share a single blood supply.

Fat Cell (adipocytes)

The individual fat cell is supported by capillaries that flow adjacent to them.

VASER Liposuction

Procedure 1

Procedure 1

A. Skin layer

B. Neurovascular bundle

The neurovascular bundle contains small arteries, veins, and nerves.

C. Septae

The septae are fibrous connective tissue bands that span the fatty layer. The septae connect the dermal layer of the skin to the fascia of the underlying muscle layer. Areas of very thick connective tissue between the skin and underlying fascia form structures such as the breast fold and buttock fold.

D. Fat lobule

The fat lobule is a cluster of fat cells that share a single blood supply.

E. Muscle fascia

The muscle fascia is a layer of dense connective tissue that surrounds the muscle layer.

Procedure 2

Procedure 2

Tumescent Fluid Infusion

This is the first step in a liposuction procedure.

The fluid infused into the fatty layer is called tumescent fluid because enough fluid is placed into the fatty layer to make it “swollen”. The fluid is a sterile salt water (saline) from an IV bag that contains very dilute lidocaine which numbs the skin and fatty layer. The fluid also contain very dilute epinephrine (adrenaline) which will make the blood vessels contract which controls bleeding.

The fluid is infused with a “Klein needle” which is a thin blunt cannula. The procedure can be done under local anesthesia fairly comfortably if the infusion is done slowly.

Procedure 3

Procedure 3

Emulsification

This is the second step in a VASER liposuction procedure.

A thin titanium probe is inserted into the fatty layer. The probe is “powered” by an untrasound handpiece that ossilates the probe at 36,000 times per second. One cannot see the probe movement but one can hear the sound.

The emulsification step is important in that it will separate the fat cells and fat lobules from the septae and other connective tissue. Think of shaking grapes off of the vine. This prepares the fat for extraction, making the extraction portion of the procedure easier and more precise. The surgeon is able to remove more fat from a specific area if the fat has been emulsified with ultrasound.

The ultrasound does not disrupt blood vessels like veins or arteries. The nerves are also uninjured. Most of the fat cells themselves are still intact after the emulsification process and can be used for fat transfer to other parts of the patient’s body such as the buttock, face, or breast.


Procedure 4

Procedure 4

Aspiration

This is the final step in a VASER liposuction procedure.

The fat is suctioned out using a blunt cannula. The cannulas used during a VASER liposuction procedure do not have to have sharp edges because the fat is already emulsified. The fat is now easier to suction out and this portion of the procedure can be done more precisely. The surgeon can redirect his/her focus from debulking the fatty area to sculpting the fat, allowing for a better and more refined result.

Procedure 5

Procedure 5

Skin Retraction

A significant amount of fat can be removed with aspiration. The fatty layer contains less volume debulking the area. The VASER has stimulated the septae to contract pulling the skin down toward the muscle layer. If fat is removed from the superficial layer of fat, just below the surface of the skin, the skin itself can also contract horizontally more easily.
