Cosmetic surgery to alter the shape of your rib cage is rare and therefore considered ‘exotic’ even though there are communities that request it more often. It’s a very popular procedure among transgender adults, but can be sought by anyone with a less than typically feminine body type in order to define their waist. Few surgeons are able to perform rib cage modification procedures, and it requires very highly skilled expertise in order to safely perform this surgery.
There is a lot of confusion about waist/ribcage-related surgery. It’s not as dangerous as some people may think, as long as it’s performed by a qualified surgeon. Often, rib cage modification is called “rib cage removal,” however, this is a myth as the rib is not entirely removed. In fact, only a portion of the rib is removed allowing the remaining rib to perform as normal.
This procedure improves the shape of the waist by removing two floating ribs, thus exposing more space and enhancing organ protection.Some patients can only achieve the waist size they desire with rib removal, with a greater chance of success when combined with a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) for more dramatic results.
