    I am an 18 year old girl. I had the nuss procedure on my chest 2 years ago. My chest is quite unusual because on set of ribs did not grow enough causing my sternum to twist up to 90 degrees. Due to crowding of my heart and lungs along with shortness of breath and chest pains, they actually used 2 bars rather than one to fix it. I can breath now and have no more pains, but one side of my chest is still noticeably more sunken in than the other. I'm wondering if there is any non surgical possibilities.

    I have a similar case with both Pectuus Carinatum and Excavatum causing my sternum to twist as well so one side of my ribcage is raised while the other is sunken. I had one nuss bar around the age of 15/16 but it worsened it. I am not sure there are any non surgical ways around it. Now 21 I have chosen to have another surgery, similar to the Ratvich where cartilage and bone is removed and the sternum is twisted. As well as this I will be seeing a plastic surgeon after my surgery.

    How do i get rid of this sunken chest problem as my doctor said it isn't bad but I think it Is as don't k ow where I would need to get it sorted

    Hi Magz, only your GP or a specialist can say if surgery will be required for health reasons, but in terms of breast development, I would not worry too much. I was always a slight girl and my sunken chest actually had the added benefit that it was a sort of "false cleavage". Though even at 40 years old now, my breast are not large (A cup), they appear more so because of my sunken chest (been mistaken for a large B or small C cup). One issue is do have is finding a bra that fits comfortably as my ribs are a bit sharply angled as a result. Underwires are very uncomfortable. Take the time with your daughter to find a properly fitting bra when she is developing and she will be much more comfortable and should not be embarrassed about her sunken chest. As I mentioned, it does have benefits! I can sleep comfortably on my belly even though it looks like I have a large bosom!

    Can anyone tell me if my 10 year old daughter will need treatmnet/surgery on her very sunken chest to allow her breasts to develop properly during puberty?

    Im 39 and have a sunken chest and sticky out equal bones which I hate. I did have a breast enlargement as I was so flat chested thinking it would help which it did a little. But I hate feeling the way I do and still struggle when on holiday and with certain clothing. When I was married I use to flintch when my husband went near me unexpected. Just wondering do they do corrective surgery under the NHS is it just certain areas of the country?

    Sunken Chest Surgical Procedure A less invasive procedure is helping kids with pectus excavatum or sunken chest get back to the activities they enjoy. Sunken chest is a congenital deformity characterized by a concave sternum or breastbone. If severe, it can compress or displace the heart and lungs causing shortness of breath, chest pain, palpitations and respiratory disease. To correct a sunken chest, Gundersen Lutheran pediatric surgeon Mark Saxon, MD, FACS performs a minimally invasive surgery called the Nuss procedure, named for Donald Nuss, MD, the pediatric surgeon who developed it. This procedure requires only three small, out-of-site incisions—one under each arm to insert and position a customized curved stainless steel bar, and the third for a thin scope that allows the surgical team to view inside the chest.

    Hi just like to wish you all the luck in the world. Everything crossed that it all goes well for you.

    I am a woman of 43 years, and have always had the sunken chest you describe here. My ribs also stick out at odd angles, but apart from always having struggled to keep fit, this condition doesn't affect my life in any way!! Sure when I was 15 it was a bit embarrassing, but then everything about your body is embarassing at that age!! I have been a fire-fighter for 6 years, so it's not too much of a problem for me now. So if you have this sunken chest, don't worry, it makes you special and unique.

    I'm 17 years old, my brother suffers with sunken chest he is 21. He had problems with breathing as his is severe, I then noticed I also had sunken chest when I was 14 but not as severe. I have had no problems and I would just like to know if the condition can get worse as you age, as I only noticed it during puberty. Also are there any exercises to improve the appearance or any ways to improve the look without surgery?

    Hello Sarah. Not sure if you will get this but my boyfriend of 8 years now has the sunken chest, he was born with it. He is now 25 years old. His chest is pretty sunken in, and so far has caused him no health problems. It may get a bit worse as your son ages but it may not get TOO severe, it may even itself out and just turn into a minor maybe slightly severe dip. I have heard this causes some people heart problems and it is a possibility maybe this is happening to your son. But I have never heard of anyone loosing their life from it and they may be able to do surgery when he is older if its really bad. As your son ages help him do excersizes that strengthen his lungs and his chest and also cardio. This will ease the tension that might be on his heart and also make his heart stronger and able to deal with it better. But dont fret! My boyfriends chest is pretty deep and he is still doing just fine! :)

    I'm a 17 year old girl. I have pectus carinatum. The middle bone of my chest sticks out in the centre of my chest and my left side of the chest is sunken in. I feel that it has gotten worse over the years. I would like to know what I could do about it. I'm very self conscious about it and so I don't wear any thing low cut or even swimwear. is there any surgery available and what is involved?

    Hi i'm a 21 year old girl and I have a mix of both excavatum and carinatum I found out about it when I was around 15. I've since had the Nuss procedure with one bar for two years and I am soon going to have a more invasive surgery as it wasn't successful in my case. I felt similar to you and still dont feel confident enough to wear swimwear. I was also referred to a plastic surgeon as my Pectus may not ever be corrected completely. You should be able to see your local GP who should refer you to the nearest hospital who specialises in Pectus. I hope this helps you and anyone else! :)

    My daughter had severe caranatum. Joe at Pectus Services is the best and I highly recommend him. She wore a brace he designed for a year and her chest is perfect. He can help. Her procedure was done at a younger age but I'm sure he can help you or offer guidance. Good Luck. You can find Pectus services online. Check it out.

    hi, my son as a sunken chest, it just seems to be on the right side of is chest,i myself have the same condition ,but being a woman don't look as bad,he does worry about it, is it common.

    My father had a sunken chest, and he passed it on to me. It was not as big a deal to me as I am female. He was extremely athletic and participated in many, many sports throughout his youth and even as an adult. By 22, his had come out, as you describe, and he looks 100% normal. I am the opposite of athletic. I hate sports and physical activity and have avoided both my whole life. At 40, there is definitely improvement and my chest is not as sunken as it was. It has not been a priority because my breasts hide the condition almost completely. My GP told my mom when I was young it would come out on its own. I think that if I had been athletic, it most likely would have. Keep doing what you're doing. I have seen it work. But definitely see your GP to talk about any lingering issues you may need to be aware of. And stay active! It is much harder to become athletic later in life. I now realize a healthier body would've made significant positive impact in all areas of my life. Getting in shape now, and trying to develop good habits, is really difficult.

    I am a 38yr old female.Only recently discovered the cause of my chest problem (PE)from the internet.Started getting it when I hit my teens,quickly ended up with a really sunken chest.My 'helpful' GP told me it was a result of bad posture and it was my own fault for not sitting properly!Have problems with breathing;get wheezy and out of breath and ache a lot in chest area..and as others have said it effects confidence.In saying all that,I have researched options and am put off by what looks like serious surgery and scarring.

    Ime a 50 year old with a severe sunken chest am I too old for the op

    Hey. I'm 18 and have also suffered with a sunken chest for as long as i can remember. Although it didn't hurt in any way, it was causing a huge phychological impact on me and i wanted to have something done about it. I am currently recovering from the operation i had in Febuary this year to correct my chest. The difference is phenomenol. Although i have a fairly noticable scar now, my chest comes out a lot more and looks a lot better than before. If it is bothering you a lot then it would be worth thinking about surgery but think long and hard about it first. Although your chest will improve, you will have a scar instead for the rest of your life, so you need to decide which is worse. There is quite a bit of pain involved aswell for several weeks.

    Hey, I've always had a sunken chest and it never bothered me untill recently. I used to be a 34a before I had my baby daughter two years ago, and now I'm a big 36c. My problem is finding a bra that fits. I've been measured dozens of times but they always seem a bit clueless as to how to help me. If I ever raise my arms up, my boobs sorta pop out because its not flush with my chest as it should be. It's very uncomfortable, and I constantly have to "fix" myself. Any ideas??

    HI I am 62yrs and i always new that my chest was different to everybody else. My mother used to say many times that i had a sunken chest. I had exercises when i was young and breathing exercises aswel as i have asthma.I dont know if the exercises were due to this and know more was said. I didn`t know what it was called to i seen your program. Am i to old to have this done, or can i get this on the NHS. I have always been in the shade when wearing certain tops as i knew i was different. I had no confidence and i just wanted to be normal like everybody else. My 2 daughters dont suffer from this as i was thinking it could have been from birth as i was only 5 pounds in weight. My lady doctor when i was ill noticed my chest and commented if it had always been that way. I felt so embarrassed as i then new other people must had seen me the same way. I have always had back pain and chest pain. I have 0estoarthris and fybromaigia. What can i do.

    This sounds excellent and i have the same and i would love this to be done but how did you manage to get to this stage of having an operation?? and how deeply sunken was your chest??

    Hi, I have a 3 and halve month old baby girl and she has been diagnosed with Poland. At first drs were not sure what it was as she was born with her heart on the opposite side, missing fingers on her left hand and her chest on the left side is sunken in. I am concerned for how her chest will develop when she gets older.

    I'm a 36 year old male who's had a sunken chest since birth and thought i was unique. My doctor thinks there's nothing wrong with it but it's not that easy to ignore when it's you'r chest affected, simple tasks like going topless in the sun or going swimming leaves you'r heart racing at the thought of people staring at you as you walk by.Any information on treatment would be welcomed with open arms!
