Extracting the excess 'fat' from a company - i.e. removing all the excessive middle management!
Large companies seem to be continuously going through re-organisations and structure changes - and in the process more and more middle management seem to be created who do not seem to serve a real purpose - the company gets 'fat'. A company can be said to require 'Corporate Liposuction' if it has become 'fat' due to constant changes at management level.
