Welcome To Make Me Taller - The MMT Community!

The purpose of this site is to provide a place where people can learn the facts about Leg Lengthening (LL) for height enhancement. This forum is not here to encourage anyone to undergo Leg Lengthening surgery. Leg Lengthening is expensive, difficult, painful, and carries a number of risks that should dissuade anyone casually interested in it. Leg Lengthening should not be done by anyone that simply "wants" it. It is solely for those people that feel like they need it to be happy with themselves and their life. If you do not feel like you absolutely need leg lengthening to be happy, then you probably should not do it. It is more difficult than you can imagine, no matter how much you have read or how strong you think you are.

Height discrimination is experienced by both men and women, many of whom do not understand the ridicule they receive for a physical attribute they had no choice about. People who are considered by others to be 'short' often experience lower self-esteem and confidence.

This board has three clear goals:

1. To giving people an opportunity to become properly informed about LL before considering it by properly exploring the risks, costs and timescales involved;

2. Identifying the right procedure, the right surgeon and the most convenient location for prospective patients to have LL surgery, and to teach that many of the difficult parts of Leg Lengthening happen long after the initial surgery

3. Supporting those who have made the decision to have LL by giving them an opportunity to share their experiences with others, to get advice from those who have already done it, and to get words of encouragement from others - especially important as many people undergo LL in secret.

The values that underpin our community are:

a. This forum will always be led by people who have ACTUALLY undergone the LL surgery. It will be a patient-led initiative where doctors and practitioners are welcome to contribute, but where it will always be led by those who represent patients.

b. This forum will strive to ensure that the information on it is correct, by the use of tight moderation and administrative control, and by actively managing the quality of the content and the membership of the community to ensure its consistent high-quality.

c. This forum will aim to maintain a consistently high-quality level of content and discussion by ensuring that posts are of sufficiently high-quality, and that posters remain on-topic.

d. I will ensure that the members of this forum remain anonymous, and that their identities are protected to the greatest extent possible. Anyone trying to disclose the identity of other members of the forum will be banned immediately.

Anyone who wants to contribute may join and will be approved immediately. Members only risk being suspended if they publish inappropriate material or harass other members.

Hi Sysop,

I'm a new member of MMT community although I been reading a lot of diaries now, thank you for approving my membership.  First I want to send my appreciation to you Sysop, MMTA and all the vets for being an inspiration to me to pursue my dream of LL as I'm planning to do it in few months.  I felt the sincerity of you guys to help the people who wants to go LL.  Sorry for posting here as I don't know how to send a pm to any member as I would like to ask a lot of questions before undergoing LL.  I would also ask if there's any update regarding Beijing as there's no diaries there lately aside from Ssteiner.  I am planning to go there soon.  Again, thank you.

I want to discuss my proportions, etc as I am considering LL but unsure of how much should I do and when do I stop?
Where can I ask the detailed questions? I can not find the admin email, I can  not look at people's profiles either. 
Please help.

Describing the pain: The pain feels similar to being sore after a workout, also the legs feel tight.  The pain starts to increase after 4 hours, and this is where mental pain control starts, to try to extend the pain killer to 5-6 hours.  (Precise-Femur 2017)

I'm a new user to this community.   My wife and I just learned from an endocrinologist that our 13 year old son has stopped growing just shy of 5"2.   He has a bone age of 17.   He was always on the shorter side but was projected by my pediatrician to eventually top out at between 5"6 and 5"8.

We haven't told him that he is not likely to grow anymore.   We are not sure how to handle that information and have an appointment with a child psychologist to help us figure out how best to answer the questions he is likely to pose down the road.

We are hoping that he is going to be comfortable with his height, or at least comfortable enough that he does not want to go through with LL to change it.   But we have started saving, and we will should have enough to do it by the time he is of age to make an informed decision.

Just dont lie to him and be realistic. 5'2 for a man is very difficult. Finding normal girlfriend wife etc to. He can gain quite a lot to reach decent 5'7 with a good doctor and time.

The first option you should consider would be human growth hormone therapy. You should speak to a specialist about the possibility of using it before even considering LL. I know a few people who used it for this issue at a young age and it worked reasonably well for them.

He's unfortunately too old for HGH.   He went through a very fast puberty.   His growth plates have fused.   He has a bone age of 17, although he is only 13.

Read through all the FAQs.     I see some people introduced themselves here to try to get an opinion/feedback on their situation?   I can't seem to start a new thread in General Questions.

A couple of questions about how this site works. . .

It says that I can't view profiles, every time I click on a users name.  Why? How to view profiles if possible?

Also, how come you can PM some people but not others?

The idea is to keep all questions about LL so that everyone can see them. Someone else might have the same question that you have.
