Can Rib Removal and Breast Augmentation Be Done At The Same Time?
Q: Dr. Eppley, is asking if Rib Removal and Breast Augmentation may be done in the same surgery?
A: Rib removal and breast augmentation can be done at the same time and their diametric effects are synergestic for body contouring changes. It is not too much surgery to go through at one time and is commonly done. Neither procedure causes an undue amount of pain nor does one recovery prolong the recovery of the other procedure.
