Waist reduction using the Kudzaev's method

Waist reduction by the Kudzaev method is a surgical operation using which it becomes possible to form a new, wasp silhouette without removing ribs. As a surgeon, I do not recommend my patients to remove the ribs and try to dissuade them from such a step. The Kudzaev method is a safe alternative that allows to achieve a thin waist but in a gentle, delicate way.

The Waist Reduction Surgery without Removing the Ribs: a Most Safe and Healthy Method

A wasp, defined waist is a dream that women desire to achieve through diets, sports training, sometimes liposuction and modeling. However, all efforts will be in vain if individual anatomical features do not provide for a wasp silhouette. To fix this, girls sometimes resort to removing one of the lower ribs. However, this method is dangerous, and as a surgeon I do not recommend this technique. The ribs perform a protective function for the internal organs. If they are removed, the kidneys, liver, stomach are in a vulnerable position. Pyelonephritis, renal lowering, diseases of the heart, blood vessels and genitourinary system are only part of possible negative consequences.

A safe alternative is waist modeling by the method of Dr. Kudzaev. This is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that allows to reduce the waist by 6 to 10 centimeters. In this approach, the ribs are not removed or moved, they perform their natural functions, i.e., the protection of internal organs. Minimal invasiveness means that recovery is as fast as possible. The very next day you are at home and full rehabilitation takes several months, during which you live an almost habitual life.


Making the surgery is recommended in the following cases (indications for the surgical intervention): a girl feels emotional discomfort and wants a thin, wasp waist. However, anatomical features provide for a slight difference between the waist and hips. At the same time, the patient has a normal physique, and the body mass index is not more than 25.

How is the Narrowing of the Waist without Removing the Ribs Performed?

Waist reduction without removing the ribs is a minimally invasive procedure. It requires preparation and careful diagnostics of the patient.

The surgery is performed as follows:

  1. The surgeon makes small (only 1.5 to 2 centimeters long) incisions on both sides of the spine, at the level of a pair of lower ribs. Through them he gains access to the ribs;
  2. The back part of the cortical layer is incised, after which the doctor very carefully and delicately makes a fracture of the rib and creates a nice bend. In this case, the ribs position does not change, they are not sawn off and are not moved to another location. They only change the angle of their curvature, which allows to create a wasp waist;
  3. The wound is sutured with blind sutures and sealed with surgical glue. Self-absorbable sutures are used that do not need to be removed;
  4. A special corset is put on the patient and fixed in maximum tension.

The surgery takes 30 to 60 minutes and is performed under local or general anesthesia.

Rehabilitation and Basic Rules of Postoperative Care

Recovery after the surgery is comfortable and fast, but requires strict adherence to medical recommendations. The main thing is to wear a corset for three months after the surgery without removing it (day and night). It is made to order, according to individual measurements. Otherwise, the fragments of the ribs will not grow together, and the silhouette will not change its shape. Other recommendations are common to all plastic surgeries: a day should be spent in the hospital for observation, it is recommended to avoid sports and physical activity for 1.5 to 2 months. Painful sensations are usually absent, but if, as an exception, they are present, painkillers are prescribed.
