Definition: any structural anomaly of the irregular layer of loose connective tissue containing fibroblasts, adipose cells, and macrophages, that is immediately deep to the skin and superficial to the deep fascia; usually consisting primarily of a fatty layer and may also include a muscle layer and/or a fibrous layer, or it may occur as a membranous layer only, being nearly devoid of fat; it contains skin ligaments extending between the dermis and deep fascia, cutaneous nerves, and superficial vessels, with terminal branches passing into the skin layers
