    Frontal-rib hump?

    Hi, Forgive my English. I've made a lot of search an have found absolutly nothing either in google or at this forum about frontal-rib humps.
    I'm not sure if this is scolosis I don't think so, I dont have any pain or discomfort
    I would like to know if there is any kind of plastic surgery procedure for rib symmetry?
    Anyone knows something about this?

    Thanks!!

    Hi, I also have a rib hump in the front on the left side. My rib hump in the back is on the right side. Mine is caused from the scoliosis. My doctor did discuss about having surgery to fix the ribs but he would prefer not to do it if it's not medically needed. As Linda posted on here somewhere the other day, anytime that your ribcage is messed with, it can affect your pulmonary functions for up to 5 years.
