We were recently talking about plastic surgery and I mentioned floating rib removals done by actresses and models for smaller waists, and was told by a posted that the poster didn't believe such a thing happens.

So here you go:

http://www.streaming...extremerib.html

The plastic surgeon talks about how he only does the rib removal on short-waisted women. Umm.....

It's linked to body dysmorphism:

http://breast-health...e_more_suicides

Quote

Mrs Sheyla Hershey, 28, a Brazilian-born singer, actress and model living in Houston, Texas has a bust size of 38kkk after a series of breast implants over many years. She made the headlines in the US earlier this year when she commented that she was contemplating to have further breast augmentation surgery to give her the biggest breasts in the world. With 11 breast enhancements, Mrs Hershey says each of her breasts contains 6,000cc of silicone. She eventually wants 10,000cc per breast.She has already scheduled her next procedure for November, in Brazil. She's also had another 21 procedures done, including liposuction, butt implants, and removing two ribs for a smaller waist. Readers of this news clip might find it bizarre and somewhat amusing. However, doctors and researchers are keen to find out why some women will go through all these surgical procedures for bigger breasts. Besides they are on to another more serious and heavy topic, that of increased incidence of suicide and death in women with cosmetic implants.

Another link:

http://annecollins.n...-body-image.htm

Floating rib removal is usually done in conjunction with a tummy tuck.

When I was looking for the link, I was stunned to find out how many women are using corsets today. The damn things are dangerous, and I thought they went out almost a century ago.

I looked up pictures of that lady, and about fell out of The Chair. Thats not sexy, much less sensual, it's...grotesque...

And I knew about rib removal surgery, but certainly didn't think it was making a comeback from back from the late 1800's - I was about to say 'the days of corset's, but I do know how popular those are nowadays -

and yes Rhea it is a very quiet movement.

I agree. That isn't remotely sexy or sensual. It's freaking disgusting.

I'm all for curves and stuff but that's WAY beyond what I'd consider remotely appealing. :barf: I'll take the natural waists any day, "flaws" and all.

The space between the top of my hip bone and the bottom of my rib cage is barely over one inch.  It's annoying and uncomfortable at times.  But getting ribs removed just to have a small waist?  Ugh!

Body dysmorphism is a hideous thing, though.  (A triple-K bust?!!?  Eww.)  When your very perceptions are so screwed up... :headshake: ...well, they have my sympathies.  I don't understand why the surgeons just go ahead and do this stuff.  While, yes, they leave a certain portion of the rib for protection, it still can't be good for the structural integrity of the human body.  Geez.

Avalon, like you I have a Very short waist, and boy has it been a pain at times but I'd never think of having a lower rib removed ( though technically the last floating rib is just an unnecessary extra, or so I've been given to understand )

Fixed it for you. :p Those things are so big they have their own climate. :p

And another thing-does she steer with her boobies? :p I keep seeing her boobs getting in the way of actual driving. :p~

That's because YOUR boobies aren't as big, I'll bet. ;) There's not enough gravity for you to fall out of your chair. ;)

Like it's said in a recent movie "I've always been a bit busty..." but how can someone be proud of such fakes?

There fixed that again. It seriously looks like an ass stuck on her chest. Yuck. I can barely handle being a B size (banging into things - ouch, pain at that time of the month, finding the right fitting bra, etc. ect.) being that huge, by choice no less, is simply insane.
