I choose Alternative Growing Method!


« on: January 18, 2012, 03:25:03 PM »

Hi there,

At last I've received my visa to go to Russia and booked my flight straight away.
I will be travelling to Volgograd on Sunday 22 January and probably stay there for 4 months or maybe longer.

Little info about myself and the reason for doing LL.

Well, my approximate height is 1.68cm. I hope to lengthen by 7cm on my tibiae including the height gained from correction.
I had a cosmetic procedure done a few years ago to improve the appearance of my legs by having calf implants. Unfortunately they just look so unnatural and did not work for me, so I've decided to save up some money and go for LL, plus correction. My tibiae are bowed and quite short . Besides, I have long torso, which makes me look disproportionate. LL has always been my dream and for a girl to have nice slender legs means a lot. I am sure that ladies out there support me on that. I tried to be proud of my lower legs and overall with my looks. But I found myself struggling day after day trying to find the right bootlegged trousers or long skirts to disguise the bowing and high heels to match my work colleagues' tall stature. Even with calf implants I find it difficult to expose my legs. I have never worn flat shoes. High heels have always been my saviour.
Anyway, I know this is going to be second diary about Volgograd Clinic here on MMT but if you do have questions, feel free to ask me and I will do my best to give you timely response.

Awhhh, thanks Crazy+6. But I really do look disproportionate without heels on. I am really grateful for existence of MMT. I have got so much information out of it and would not be able to thank enough for the knowledge I've gained.

Once again big thanks for the support and a flattering compliment.  Smiley

Hi slawek1000,

You pay 12,500 euros for 3 months stay including full board (hospital stay and meals served 3 times a day), thereafter you pay 1000 euros per month should you decide to stay in Volgograd for consolidation period. If you request an invitation from the Clinic (2 months - waiting time), then you pay additional 100 euros, plus another 100 for the consultation with Dr.Barinov. Total: 12,700 euros. I've been told that 3 months is enough to lengthen 5-7cm.

Legs7, three months is long enough to lengthen 6 cm if you are lengthening .66 mm a day, but lengthening is only the first part of the battle. I'm assuming you are not doing LON. It is my understanding that the 12,500 euro price for surgery and three months of accommodation does not include LON. I have not gotten and answer yet from RUSCOM about what price they charge for LON. If you are not doing LON, how long will you plan to stay in Volgograd until your legs are consolidated enough to have your frames removed?

Even with LON i think you will need more than 3 months unless you're planning to return home in a wheelchair. Most of the people here need a month or more after frames removed with LON to be able to walk.

hey sysop. For LON, there are more scars than purely external method right? Mainly the big monstrous ones on the knees.

I guess she is going home with external frames for consolidation phase and will be walking with crutches for some time, not in the wheelchair.

There is no big need to stay in hospital after lengthening.

So she can go home and send to her doctor the Xrays and when the doctor thinks her bone is fully consolidated then come back to hospital and do the final operation.

Even with LON or external only methods, the serious phase is lengthening.
After that there isn't any problem to travel back to her home.

However, the price of Volgograd is very good and if the results are also good then I think this place is much better than China where the cost is double.

Legs7 I wish you the best!

I highly doubt that Dr. Barinov will in any case support lengthening by "just" 0,66 mm per day. I already discussed that with him several times, he says that the main problem is actually that one of the bones could get consolidated, especially during the first 1-3 cm.

On top of that, please guys, keep in mind that this 12.500 Ä is just an estimated amount. Since youíre paying in Ruble and not in Euro, everything goes up and down with the value of the currency. The Euro is falling dramatically ever since the bankruptcy with Greece, so please calculate more.

The difference is negligible yet so far.

I'm curious how much Dr. Barinov suggests patients lengthen per day during the first 1-3 cm.

Exactly. Also, Greece hasn't bankrupted yet.

About distraction rate, most doctors suggest about 1mm per day distraction rate until the first 2-2,5 cm and then less, unless there is a danger for premature consolidation.
