Rib Resection for a Slimmer Waist

Rib Resection for a Slimmer Waist

The quest for the perfect body often takes people to extremes, and one such extreme is rib resection surgery, a procedure where individuals opt to have their lower floating ribs partially or completely removed to achieve a more slender waistline. What may sound like a bizarre urban legend is, in fact, a real surgical option that has been used to create a more defined and narrower waist. While this procedure was initially designed for specific medical situations, some have turned to it as a way to achieve their desired appearance. In the past, the famous Broadway performer Anna Held underwent this risky surgery in 1900, seeking a slimmer figure at a time when such procedures were far less advanced and considerably riskier.
