Adipose tissue is commonly called fat, it contain adipose cells which insulate the body and protects it from bumps and from extremes of both temperatures.

Fat tissue. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a sample of fat tissue, showing fat cells (adipocytes, blue) surrounded by fine strands of supportive connective tissue. Adipocytes are among the largest cells in the human body, each cell being 100 to 120 microns in diameter. Almost the entire volume of each fat cell consists of a single lipid (fat or oil) droplet. Adipose tissue forms an insulating layer under the skin, storing energy in the form of fat, which is obtained from…

Adipose cells or adipocytes are specialized connective tissue for the storage of fat. The large adipocytes are held in place by strands of collagen fibers and a fine network of reticular fibers. A large capillary is seen near the cell surface. SEM

The Lymph System Within the adipose tissue is a network of ligaments, fibrous connective tissue, nerves, lymph vessels, lymph nodes, and blood vessels. The lymph system, which is part of the immune system, is a network of lymph vessels and lymph nodes running throughout the entire body. Similar to how the blood circulatory system distributes elements throughout the body, the lymph system transports disease-fighting cells and fluids. Clusters of bean-shaped lymph nodes are fixed in…
