So I have a chest deformity, went to a chest surgeon with it, had CT scan and all of that stuff, looks like this:http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/339/image439x.jpg/
It looks like this in person: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/706/p5260348.jpg/
It does not cause any health problems, only that I really don't like how I look
There are two kinds of surgeries:
1st the Ravitch procedure:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-SApqPHdOUo
Here they open up the chest, and cut out pieces witch overgrow, with this kind of surgery the chest is probably going to stay in the good position after healing, but there will be a big scar on the chest
The other: The Nuss procedurehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCrRsgN6aFI
Here they make only 3-4cm cuts under the arms and put in big bars, I would need to, and has to be in at lest 3-4 years, and there is a big possibility when they remove it the chest goes back to it's former position. but there are no big scars.
I don't know really what to do, my looks bothers me for several years now, and I just really can't get along with myself this way.
