Rib Removal ProcedureThe procedure is complex and should be performed by plastic surgeons trained in handling rib dissections and rib removal procedures. Dr. Parikh will mark the back with two oblique incisions on the mid to lower back over the area of the floating ribs. General anesthesia is performed, and the 11 and 12th ribs are removed. A local anesthetic is placed in the wound for pain control and the incisions are then closed.
I felt that I was in amazing hands from beginning to end. Diana and the office staff are all incredibly welcoming and kind and were always available and willing to answer any questions throughout the entire process. On surgery day, Dr. Salloum, the anesthesiologist, was very comforting and caring as were the nurses, Kristy and Denise. Following surgery, I had Esmeralda do my lymphatic massages and she’s super talented and made my recovery much easier.
Dr. Parikh himself has incredible bedside manner, made me feel comfortable and was always available to contact with any questions or concerns. He is an absolute artist and I have never been happier with my body. I look amazing! Thank you Dr. P! S.M., Arizona
