How Is Recovery After Rib Modification?

Rib removal recovery, if done without a tummy tuck, is approximately 10-14 days. After this point, patients may return to working, walking, and functioning normally. This approach is not as common as the modified tummy tuck approach as most patients dislike scars on their backs.

If a patient opts for rib removal with the tummy tuck approach, the recovery time is also 10-14 days. 

Patients whose jobs require heavy lifting should take a full 6 weeks off after this procedure. It is recommended not to lift more than 10 pounds following this procedure until after the 6-week mark. 

What Is The Outcome Of This Procedure?

The outcome is a dramatically smaller waist, especially when combined with a tummy tuck. Removing the ribs allows the stomach muscles to be pulled even tighter during the tummy tuck.

The results are extremely natural, and they help a patient who feels that they have a boxy figure obtain an hourglass shape.
