Hello. I am a dancer, and many years ago I broke my left rib. It sticks out and is affecting my career.

Posted by madamek

I had it checked out by a doctor and I was told the rib isn't presenting me any dangers. But for my career, it's kind of unsightly. It sticks out much more compared to my right rib. Is there any procedure I can have done to even out my rib cage, and how high are the risks? 

ALSO: the dancing I do involves corsetry, which my rib that sticks out will get in the way of. I'm wondering what procedure I would undergo and how long it would be before I could start wearing my corsets while the rib is reforming, or if the rib would just be trimmed down, etc...
