Rib Repositioning is a novel technique our doctors perform in Austin and San Antonio. In this week's episode of Plastic Surgery Untlold, board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Franco, Dr. Micallef, and Dr. Weinfeld discuss this surgery. Rib Repositioning creates a snatched waist by making a small incision in the bottom two sets of ribs, called the floating ribs, which are not attached to the sternum. Our doctors use amazing tools such as a Piezotome to saw the bone while being safe and precise, as well as the ultrasound. This surgery is perfect for someone who feels square or does not have enough fat to shape their body, transgender patients, and more. Are you looking for a natural hourglass curve?
