I have seen many people with long forearm, but I've never found anyone who has significantly longer upper arms. I assume most people aim at 5cm. To what extend will arm lengthening affect the function of arms.

I can't imagine you can do  one segment (humerous) without doing the other (forearm) without looking "strange". 
As for your initial  question, with rehabilitation and excercise I would imagine the function of your arms will go back to normal.  Years ago I had LL done and I can outrun any of my friends and beat them in squats. so I wouldn't worry about  recovery.

It depends how much you want to lengthen. If you do something between 1"-1.5" in each arm it's hard to believe anything would look strange. Doing forearm is not worth the risk.

Why don't you do videos of when you're outrunning your friends or squat more than them?

Everyone would like to see that!!
Write about how many cm you did and method and we will all benefit from that.

If I would lengthen my humorous, I would do 3,5 - 4cm MAX!! It can easily look weird in your arms.

I disagree. Arms never look weird when they're longer-- it actually looks a lot better. This is one characteristic that I find tall women to have, and really like, which makes my dating life 100x worse lol.

Compare the porn star Kitty Jane to the video model Alicia Diaz. I can't find many non NSFW photos of Kitty Jane so It's hard to get a good comparison photo, but overall, Kitty Jane's longer arms look significantly better than Alisha's.

To clarify, I was comparing the humerus length and not the arms as a whole. Not sure why i kept saying arms.

actually, women with longer arms are more attractive according to this research:

not sure if this can apply to men

Guichet has said that humerus lengthening can possibly lead to paralysis. Paley said he has lengthened humerus on patients with no effect on arm function.

I adked dr paley about the effects of arm lengthening by email and he said that forearm lengrhening is the most dangerous but humerus lengthening is the most risk-free of all segments and easiest to lengthen. I didn't ask Guichet but someone else on this board reported what Guichet thought of arm lengthening. I'd have to find the exact quote.

Dear Sir,Humeral lenghtening is done only when there is a functional need (dwarfs not being able to touch the taps, etc.). It is too risky as the nerve runs directly against the humeral bone.When you dream of something, then when you want to put it into reality, you always need to see risks and prevent taking too dangerous paths. Security is something very important for which there is no compromise.I am sure nobody can see it besides you, because there are a lot of variations in the population. If you got lengthening at the leg level and you find an imbalance with respect to your thighs, for this, I can help with a high security.Yours sincerely,Jean-Marc Guichet, MD, PhD, Doct.

By all segments, does that mean Humeral lengthening is less risky then femur, or tibia lengthening?

Yep, easiest segment to lengthen on the whole body.

Someone else posted a thread linking to a study that also said this.

So, who will be the first person who actually does CAL?

Dr Sarin does it.
He is about to shorten(!) one guys forearm in here but the patient keep postponing his surgery date all the time.
I don't think he has made up his mind yet really.

If I do my femur and don't feel good about my proportions I would consider humerus lengthening. 2cm would be enough in both arms.
But the whole idea just feels a bit too much.
Maybe bc no one actually does these things cosmetically.
