Liposuction. Surgeon preparing a patient for a liposuction operation. During this cosmetic procedure, fat is vacuumed from localised areas beneath the skin of the patient. Here, the surgeon is pinching the skin on the haunches of the patient to assess how much fat needs to be removed during the procedure. Markings drawn on the skin act as guidelines for the surgeon.
