Chapter 20 Lipomyosculpture

Morpho-Histology of Subcutaneous Adipose Tissue

The subcutaneous tissue is divided into two layers. Its morphological and histological analysis demonstrates differences in the superficial layer, regarding the layout of lobes, shape, disposition of interlobular septa tissue (collagen), and thickness of different body parts (Fig. 20.1).

Upper abdomen: irregular (50%), elliptical (40%) and rounded (10%) lobes with a parallel arrangement to the epidermis, thick (50%) and thin (50%) septa with a parallel arrangement in relation to the lobes (Fig. 20.2).

Lower abdomen: irregular (50%), elliptical (30%) and rounded (20%) lobes with a parallel arrangement to the epidermis, thick (70%) and thin (30%) septa with a parallel arrangement in relation to the lobes (Fig. 20.3).

Lateral thigh: irregular (80%), elliptical (10%) and rounded (10%) lobes with a parallel arrangement to the epidermis, thick (70%) and thin (30%) septa surrounding the lobes (Fig. 20.4).

Anterior thigh: irregular (60%), elliptical (30%) and rounded (10%) lobes with a parallel arrangement to the epidermis, thick (50%) and thin (50%) septa surrounding and penetrating the lobes (Fig. 20.5).

Medial thigh: irregular (90%) and elliptical (10%) lobes with a parallel and perpendicular arrangement to the epidermis, thick (30%) and thin (70%) septa surrounding and perforating the lobes (Fig. 20.6).

Dorsal region: irregular (80%), elliptical (10%) and rounded (10%) lobes with a parallel arrangement to the epidermis, thick (80%) and thin (20%) septa (Fig. 20.7).

Flank: irregular (70%), elliptical (20%) and rounded (10%) lobes with a perpendicular arrangement to the epidermis, thick (50%) and thin (50%) septa surrounding and perforating the lobes (Fig. 20.8).

Gluteal region: irregular (80%), elliptical (10%) and rounded (10%) lobes with a parallel arrangement to the epidermis, thick (90%) and thin (10%) septa surrounding and perforating the lobes (Fig. 20.9).
