Surgery for Height Increase
Height increase surgery is a complex process that has been performed primarily on children to correct disproportional leg lengths, which is also known as cosmetic limb lengthening surgery.
Surgery for height increase is referred to as a leg-lengthening procedure. It's done by cutting the tibia and fibula and attaching it with an external fixator device around the open bones. After the surgery each day, the bones slowly pull apart using the fixator device. By doing this, it will create a space in the bone and induce the growth of new bone mass to fill it. When the optimal or desired limb lengthening is achieved the lengthening process will be stopped. However, the patient will continue to use the fixator device till the new bones are solid. After that, through a small operation the fixator devices will be removed. Height increase surgery can go seriously wrong and have negative effects on you for the rest of your life.
