covering nerve fibers.

on his buttocks.
Sectioning of the specimen revealed homogeneous, glistening, pale pink-white tissue with a rim of fatty tissue
Lipophilic chemicals are partitioned into fatty tissue
and can be stored there for long periods of time due to low blood flow in these tissues and limited tissue mass turnover.
Once ovarian cancer cells reach the omentum, they quickly develop the tools to devour the sustenance provided by this fatty tissue
, reprogramming their metabolism to thrive on lipids acquired from fat cells.
MS destroys myelin, the fatty tissue
which surrounds nerves.

The development of traditional suction-assisted lipoplasty two decades ago provided plastic surgeons with a technique to remove fatty tissue
through surgical access incisions.

before they were obese.
