Hello. I’m Johan and 28 years old. I have Pectus Excavatum but it is not bad actually. I mean, when i look the other people’s Pectus Excavtum, it is clear to understand, i’m fine. But if it gets worse? I didn’t look for Pectus on google not much then i entered this site from google images searches.
I wanted to know how much costs Pectus Excavatum repair. It makes relax to calculate the money you know 🙂
Whatever, i want to learn shortly, what is Pectus Deformity?
Hi Johan it is good to see you here!
I am not a doctor but i can inform you because i had 4 times operation for Pectus. If you want to read why i did, one day i’ll tell LOL 🙂
We have already published an article all about Pectus Excavatum. But sure that QA is for short answers for your short questions 🙂
Pectus excavatum is a deformity since birth of the anterior thoracic wall in which the sternum and rib cage grow abnormally, producing a sunken chest. It can either be present at birth or not develop until puberty. Depending on the severity, it can cause problems in a person’s cardiac and respiratoryfunctions and cause pain in the chest and back. People with this condition also experience some negative psychosocialeffects. An it is about concave sternum.
You said that you have reach our site from Google Image Searches. I should inform you about us Pectus Photo Gallery! You can reach it from this link too 🙂
If you want to know my opinion, i should not you be operated. Because Pectus is just an esthetic staff for you as i understand. If it is not deeped, it will no problem. But you are obsessively, of course you can be treated. It gets just 5 days. It is about (how much days it gets) your concave sternum. Doctors must check it.
So, if you have more questions, do not hestitate to ask us!

Hello. I’m 26 years old too. I must say, you are very lucky 🙂 Because as you said, it is not complicated as mine. I have 2 surgery for Pectus Excavatum. Once, doktor used 2 bars for my pectus because it was very deep. But then one of them removed when i sleep. Then i had one surgery more but i’m fine now.
I had lot of search about pectus excavatum reparir and excercise. But i think the way to fix pectus without surgery is not possible. I think it is time westing. If you have possibility, you should be treated with surgery but only by a good doctor who had lots of operation about pectus.
