What Type of Rib Removal Surgery Did This Patient Have?

Q: Dr. Eppley,  I was just doing some extra research and saw these images that I attached, I was wondering if Dr. Eppley also osteotomized this woman’s ribs and then had her wear a corset? I’m really impressed with these results as before it looked like her rib cage was boxy but it’s quite narrow now.

A: That patient had rib removal surgery with LD muscle modification.
