Liposuction. Image 10 of 15. Cosmetic surgeon pinching fat tissue on the back of a middle-aged man during liposuction surgery. He is comparing the area being operated on (the hips, bottom) to the adjacent area to see if more tissue needs to be removed. Liposuction is a procedure that uses a cannula (held in hand at right) attached to a vacuum pump to remove excess fat and sculpt the body. As with all surgery there is a risk of infection, excess bleeding and other complications. For a sequence showing liposuction surgery see M590/339 to M590/353.
