Prone position during surgery

In order to provide the surgeon with the best possible view of the surgical area, the patient is placed in various body positions prior to surgery. In the prone position, the patient lies on his stomach to perform, for example, buttock augmentation. Common positions include the supine position, the lateral position, the “beach-chair” position or seated position, and the lithotomy position.
