...if you are looking for permanent height increase.

The purpose of this area of our board is to allow people to de-bunk many of the scams and 'miracle' growth solutions that are promoted out there on the Internet, all of which can only succeed in lightening your wallet.

At this moment in time, there is NOTHING that can make you permanently taller, other than surgery Leg Lengthening.

The only credible approach would be a significant biomedical breakthrough using techniques and solutions that may be able to either:

a. Stimulate bone growth in selected areas (e.g. the legs)
b. Re-stimulate the normal human growth process (e.g. trick your body into growing like it did in childhood)

At the time of writing, there is NO such treatment available, although some groups are working on it.

The difficulty is that, even where it works, very few scientists have any interest in its use for cosmetic purposes; their focus is on repairing broken or deformed bones, not addressing people's vanity.

As such, even if this technology becomes ready for use on humans in the short-term, MMT believes that it will be at least 30 years before the first people would be able to get it for cosmetic reasons, assuming that they could afford it.


In summary, if you're waiting for any non-surgical solution to permanent height increase, then you'll be waiting a very long time and you're not likely to see it in your lifetime.

However, we do think that it would be a good thing, and we have provided a space on this forum so that those people interested in this field - and working within it - can share their thoughts and findings here.
