Dr. Dorner performs rib removal surgery in Columbus, OH. Rib removal surgery improves the contours and definition of the waist by narrowing it just above the hips. By removing the lower three ribs, the waistline contracts and is further defined.
What are the benefits of rib removal?
Patients in good health who are not able to reduce their waist despite a healthy diet and regular exercise may benefit from this procedure. Rib removal results in a tighter waistline with improved curves. Often patients get liposuction at the same time to enhance the contour even more. This procedure improves the feminine appearance and is popular not only with women, but also transgender patients who want more of an hourglass figure.
What is the procedure for rib removal?
The operation takes about three hours and is performed with the patient under general anesthesia. Most patients will go home the same evening. The surgery involves making two small incisions on either side of lower back to access the ribs. These incisions are very small and fade over time.
There is a moderate amount of discomfort related to the rib removal procedure, with some patients experiencing lingering soreness for up to six weeks. However, most people are back to normal activities within two weeks.
