Quite an extreme way to get taller that some people consider is leg lengthening surgery. Originally it was used for correcting disproportional limbs but now is applied as a cosmetic enchantment as well.
Leg lengthening surgery is also known as Symmetric Extended Limb Lengthening. The surgery is expensive (at least $20k). Here are some prices for specific countries:
U.S. $65,000 (ISKD)
Germany $56,000 (Albizzia)
Ukraine $45,000 (Blisnikov)
Not only that – it’s a long process and very excruciatingly painful as well. If you are considering doing leg lengthening surgery for cosmetic reasons, bear in mind that it will not be covered by medical insurance and you will have to pay the full cost.
Some people regret having this surgery because they say waiting 9 months and bearing the pain is not worth it. You have metal devices attached to your legs and doctors keep breaking your perfectly healthy leg bones so they can be stretched taller with the help of the device.
Side effects of leg lengthening surgery include but are not limited to – pain, itching, inflammations and deceleration of the bones consolidation. It is also a huge risk for infection which can leave permanent damage to health.
Yes, this will get you taller and give you additional inches. But it will take a long time, a lot of money and a lot of pain endurance. Consider, if this is the way for you when there are other better solutions how to grow taller naturally in a shorter period of time and without investing anything.
