Adipocyte area measured in Non-Obese and Obese participants with and without lipedema (controls). (a) Representative H&E images showing heterogeneity and hypertrophy in cell size in adipocytes in leg fat of Non-Obese participants (scale bar = 200 µm). (b) Box and whisker plot representing the average adipocyte area in Non-Obese (Control ; Lipedema ) and Obese groups (Control ; Lipedema ) (; ).
