Will lifting weights help get rid of an indented sternum?

Sorry but no. Your sternum is where your chest muscles (pectorals) attach but there's no muscle there per se to increase w/exercise. If the appearance really bothers you, talk to a thoracic surgeon but unless it's causing you medical problems, it's unlikely s/he will recommend any surgery, and even less likely that insurance will cover this cosmetic procedure.Try to focus on all your other accomplishments!
