People always have a desire or two at any moment in life. However, there are some desires that we can only dream of and we cannot pursue because of the “risks” involved in getting them. Many people desire a perfect and beautiful body shape, especially the hourglass shape for women.
There is almost plastic surgery out there for every part of the human body. Surgery performed to remove one or more ribs inside the body is referred to as “rib resection surgery” and “rib removal surgery”. This surgery is quite rare, but some celebrities have taken bold steps to do it for a perfect body shape.
Three celebrities who took the bold step of achieving their desired body shape by removing some of their ribs:
1. Nollywood Actress born in Gambia, Princess Shyngle.
One of the few female celebrities who dared to take the step of removing part of her ribs to get the body shape she wanted. In 2019, the actress announced in an Instagram post that she had successfully removed 5 ribs from her body. She also said that more ribs would be removed in the future.

In the controversial post, Princess Shyngle claimed that her small intestine had been removed and only the large intestine remained in her stomach. She said she will remove all the ribs on her body in future. Instead of calling her fake, she prefers to be called a “work of art”.

Apart from surgery to remove ribs, she has done many other surgeries such as breast augmentation, Brazilian butt lift, also surgery to change eye color and so on.
She once wrote, “I’ve had over 20 plastic surgeries to look like a living cartoon since the last time I was here. Surgeries that I know Dr. Nasif and Dr. Dubrow will never perform on me! Two doctors she mentioned reportedly refused to operate on her when they found out that she had become addicted to surgery.
