Rib removal for beauty?

Today I watched yet another VH1 celebrity special. This particular episode discussed celebrity plastic surgery. One commentator, a plastic surgeon, mentioned how his practice and many others are seeing celebrities on a daily baisis. He briefly mentioned rib removal as a type of cosmetic surgery.

I remembered hearing that some celebrities such as Cher, Tori Spelling, Kate Moss and Britney Spears had a few of their ribs removed to have smaller waistlines and therefore appear thinner. I researched this legend on a few websites and all seemed to say that rib removal is not done and has not been performed. I then dismissed it as a myth and never thought about it again until today. Apparently, rib removal can be and has been done, so I ask you all--do you think that some celebrities have had a few ribs removed for vanity's sake or do you agree with what Snopes has to say?
