A Brooklyn doctor is facing murder charges after performing a risky liposuction that cops say left a woman dead.

Doctor Oleg Davie pleaded not guilty in court Thursday.

Cops say 51-year old Isel Pineda died during the procedure in his office.

Doctors say Davie performed the liposuction even though he knew she had a heart transplant in 2004.

Prosecutors also say Davie falsified documents to cover up her medical history.
