Rib Removal Surgery

Our ribs protect our major organs, such as the heart, lungs, liver and stomach. While we are all born with either twelve or thirteen pairs of ribs, not all of them serve a necessary function. In fact, you only require seven sets of ribs in order to maintain proper health for your organs. Some individuals may opt to remove some of their ribs for comfort or aesthetics, as this will dramatically reduce the size of a person’s waist. For those wanting a more feminine body shape, rib removal surgery is the perfect option.

How We Do Rib Removal Surgery

Rib removal surgery is a very safe procedure that only takes around one to two hours. The surgery is performed while the patient is under general anaesthesia. First, Dr. Michael K. Obeng will create a small incision on the back to allow access to the eleventh and twelfth sets of ribs. The ribs are then separated from the vertebrate and removed from the patient. The incisions will then be closed with sutures.

What Are The Benefits Of Rib Removal Surgery

  • Smaller, more shapely waist
  • Higher self esteem and confidence
  • Protection from injury as the result of breakages of the floating ribs

Recovery Time For Rib Removal Surgery

Recovery for rib removal surgery typically takes two weeks. Soreness may last up to six weeks, but this will not prevent the patient from resuming normal activity. Recovery may involve waist training which will ensure that the waist retains the thin shape responsible to create the ultimate hourglass figure.
