Can Rib Removal Surgery Reduce The Size of My Thorax?
Q: Dr. Eppley, Interested in rib removal. I have a very big thorax for my body size. Is it possible to reduce the scope of the thorax?
A: No it is not. You can’t reduce rib protrusions that high up on the chest wall. This is a common question but is beyond what rib removal surgery can do.
