What causes watery fat? (photo)

My doctor took four liters and said that my fat was watery. He stopped at arms. I will get tummy tuck and arms next month. The two peeks at the bottom of butt are very annoying to see after procedure. Do you think fat from my arms would be enough to fill those two peeks? What causes watery fat?

What causes watery fat?

I am not sure how to answer this.  The lipoaspirate frequently contains both fat and fluid.  The fatty content is the part that is injected.
