One woman wants to have the tiniest waistline in the world and went under the knife to remove six ribs to get a slimmer midriff.

Pixee Fox wears a corset every day and it has helped give her a super-slim, 18-inch waist but now wants to go smaller.

"It is not as bad as it looks," the 25-year-old told INSIDE EDITION. "This is going to be fun!"

She is no stranger to surgery. To date she's had about 15 cosmetic procedures.

Pixee has had liposuction on her inner and outer thighs, a Brazilian butt lift, four breast augmentations, four nose jobs, lip fillers, cheek fillers, two eye lifts, a mini brow lift, botox and permanent make up.

Indianapolis cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Barry Eppley says that having six ribs removed did pose a health risk.

"Anytime you have a procedure that's not commonly done that's exceedingly rare that sounds like it would be risky. Taking out ribs sounds risky," he said. "I don't think there's anything unethical as long as whoever is doing it has experience and can do it safely."

The operation lasted four hours and after recuperation, she's hoping to end up with the smallest waist in the world.

"I love what I'm doing," she said.
