In brief: Surgery
But, mostly this is cosmetic.
Unless there is pain or the rib deformity is affecting normal function, there is no reasonable indication for surgical procedure. The "rib hump" is resected under general anesthesia with or without chest wall reconstruction. Breathing complication is a risk as well as infection. Postoperative pain is controlled with analgesics.
