What Is The Best Rib Removal Method?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am from Poland and I am interested in rib removal surgery. I read about different methods and wanted to ask which one you recommend in my case. I am 29 years old and a woman, but I have always had a very boyish body type. In addition, I have mild scoliosis. I’ve had two breast implant surgeries, but they still separate slightly from side to side. The doctor said it was the chest.

It is also important for me to know what the scars look like before I decide to undergo surgery – can you send photos? and the price of the treatment.

Please let me know what you recommend in my case.

I also saw hip implants in your offer, which made me curious because I had never heard of it – would you recommend it in my case? Is it safe? What do the scars look like?

My hip circumference is only 80 cm

A: 1) I would need to see pictures of her body to do some imaging to have her see what type of waistline reduction change is possible.

2) I would go to www.exploreplasticsurgery.com and search under rib removal where extensive informatiomn about rib removal surgery can be found in over 100 writings on the topic, including the incisions used and scars.

3) But the attached two pictures are representative outocomes from the incisions used for Type 1 rib removal surgeries.
