Can I Get The Golden Ratio of 0.6 Waist to Hips With Rib Removal Surgery?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Here are some of my desired results from rib removal.

Waist: 28-30

Hips: 40
Inseam: 32

I really want that golden ratio of a .6 waist to hips. I think that a 26-27 inch waist with a 42-44 inch hips is a buffer. Here are photos of what I would like, I will attach photos of myself currently, with as little fat and showing abs for best results.

A:Thank you for your inquiry and sending your pictures. I think with your lean body frame the only way you are going to have a more narrow waist is with rib removal surgery. How much waistline reduction you can achieve with this surgery is never completely predictable so I would not specifically provide a waist measurement number for what can be achieved. The only outcome aspect of rib removal surgery that is assured is that once this is done there are no longer any further anatomic reductions that can be done. Rib removal surgery is the last stop on the waistline narrowing train.
