Can I Get My Protruding Lower Ribs Removed?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have my lower ribs protruding in both sides, and I’m interested in exploring cosmetic surgery options to make them less noticeable without complete removal. Are there procedures available for this?

A: The rib removal surgery that I have performed over the past decade for waistline narrowing is exactly that…subtotal removal of ribs 11 and 12 and sometimes 10 as well.
