Can Rib Removal Be Done As Part Of A Mommy Makeover?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Hi! I’m a year postpartum (29 years old) and looking for a mommy makeover (breast lift & replacement of current implants, waist/abdominal/love handle liposuction for a more defined waist). I’m reaching out to you in particular, even though I live in Manhattan, because you also do rib removal and I’ve always had a boxy waist but wanted a small waist my entire life. 

Could I do that as part of a mommy makeover? Do you have any before-and-after photos fo rib removal? 

A: Rib removal can be done in conjunction with a tummy tuck. To learn more about rib removal surgery I would refer you to one of my websites, and search under Rib Removal where the kay details of the surgery and before and after pictures can be seen.
