I've arranged to have this done in a couple of weeks - I'm just curious to see how it works out!

I've found a surgeon in England who does it - watch this space!

Cheers, MMT

Don't forget to provide before and after photos for comparison.

If anyone finds someone in the US that does this, let me know. Smiley I've heard of botox injections on the foot, but I don't think that is the same thing.

Just a question........Would any Orthopedist (like Dr. Guichet, Dr. Betz, Dr. Paley,...) suggest the usage of Bio-Alcamid for cosmetic reasons!??!
How would they respond to such alternative?!?! And in case it is completely "safe", then why they haven't considered switching to it instead of cutting the bones of any patient?!?!

cause it's not proper for a big amount of height. I guess more than 2-3cm under your feet doesn't feel good.  Smiley

Hey Mr. Afzayesh,

At the beginning of this thread, it says that a total of 6 cm could be gained depending on the number of sessions..........that's more than 2 inches! wouldn't anyone consider 6 cm for tibial lengthening?!?!  Roll Eyes

if it used wisely 2cm. .  maybe 3cm. .  then the result will be ok.

more than than this and you might have funny hooves.

the best thing is to use this method for a top-up -if its safe- , after surgery.
which means you stop lengthening at 7,7cm because its safer for muscles etc. , but you always wanted
10cm to hit 18xcm.  you then add another 2,3 and your dream comes true!

There's a point of view that I would like to make in here.........MMT uve already had 6 cm of tibial lengthening!
And in previous thread uve mentioned that proportions are quite important to u, that's why u were thinking of having 4.5 cm of internal femoral lengthening.
In case ure gonna have this silicone implant that's about 2-4 cms, dont u think u ll be completely out of proportions specially that it's in the area of the feet!?!! Isn't like as if u ll be making a total of 10 cm of tibial lengthening!??!

Hi dear smallpackage Smiley
 I don't think it would be like that. I think a person who had 7cm on tibias and 2cm silicone on the heels look better than a person who did 9cm tibial. I'm just imagining this, I've never seen one with silicon job  Grin

Hey Mr. Afzayesh,

Well now am starting to imagine it......
Where would be the limit of the knees? On what height? I guess it will be the same....that's why I do personally assume that I do make sense somehow....
Anw guess some people are getting ready to do it quite soon, then let's wait up for their testimonials....

2cm is something  Smiley .  I have flat feet and not comfortable when I have to stand still.  Perhaps it would be good for persons like me.  I look forward to hear more about this technique.

I'm flat footed too. Sucks big time. This certainly won't replace LL, since I don't want hooves. Yet, 8cm of LL plus 2.5 cm of this stuff would put me at solid 5'9.

Plus I can finally walk normally. So it has a medical use too.

This is definitely a great in addition to LL or as an alternative.

2cm is nothing to scoff at, that is just about 3/4 of an inch.  That alone can counter spinal compression, I've become real interested in spinal compression and measured myself immediately waking up and immediately before bed and I found that I lose just over 0.5" of height.  From my understanding some lose more and this could easily counter that. 

Also given the price, duration of the procedure and height increase I would say this is definitely a good alternative.

$8000 vs $24000-to-$150000 depending on the surgeon
One surgery vs one surgery to get the fixators on, two-to-three months for the lengthening, another surgery to remove the fixators, etc
2 cm v. 5cm-to-7cm

Depending on an individuals feet there can even be 4cm based on the article posted.  Also even with 2cm this could serve to push people close to or over that next inch mark they wish they had.  I can't wait to hear and see what MMT reports.

You should try hanging from a pull-up bar daily. This will decompress the spine nicely.
