Harriet  had  liposuction several years ago, but has since gained back all the weight lost through the procedure. She does not understand  her weight gain because adipocytes are incapable of dividing. Provide a plausible explanation.    Answer:

While it is true that  adipocytes do not  divide and the  number of fat cells  in peripheral tissues  is limited,  mesenchymal cells  can divide and give  rise to cells that  differentiate into fat  cells. Thus, areolar  connective tissue can become adipose  tissue in times of  nutritional excess.  Along with this, the  fat cells that remain  after surgery can  enlarge by storing  more triglyceride if  the patient continues  to overeat.
