Height: 163 cm (5'4 1/3)
Future Height: 171 cm (5'7 1/3)
Where: Nis,Serbia
Method: External

Thoughts: Excited about the adventure ahead saving the rest of my money that I will need to take time off and to get the op. 7-8 cm is my goal, A bit worried about complications like everyone but they all seem controlable under good care..still unsure about recovery time and when you retain full mobility.

everyone tell your stats and thoughts, see what we all have in common

Height: 163 cm (5'4" 1/3)
Future Height: 172.3 cm (5'8")
Where: Germany (with Dr. Betz)
Method: Internal (Albizzia)

It will also help if you're going for just femurs, just tibias, or both.

I'm going for both, with lengthening divided equally for femurs and tibias.

Height: 163 cm (5'4")
Future Height: 180cm (5'11"+) (minimum height to join the Russian Red Army!)
Where: Beijing (with Dr. Xia)
Method: Combined Internal & External for the Tibs only

I'm ready to join MMT, Mysterman and the others next Spring. Will need to learn Mandarin along the way so I can tell my friends I am 'studying' in China (well, China is the next superpower you know  Wink)

Keep it real.

parkour:

17cm? I'm guessing that it's not all on tibias. You crazy Russian, lol. Just kidding. You should really take a pictures and stretch your legs that long to see what you will look like. If you want to go that much, don't forget 2 inches+  on both your arms so people don't think your the next generation of T-REX:)

Height: 168 cm (5'6)
Lengthen: 7 cm or maybe 6 cm
Future Height: 175 cm (5'9)
Where: France or China
Method: Albizzia (Femur) or Combined Exteral/Interal (Tibia)

I have already went for a consulation with Dr. Guichet and talked to several Albizzia's patients while in France. Now I am researching about China. So hopefully after some more research and learning/reading about MMT and MysteryMan's experience on this forum I can make a better decision on where to go!

Again, I think you two (MMT and MysteryMan) are doing a great job! Keep it up and I look forward to hear more about your experience (the good and the bad) in China!

Congratulations! Going for more than 10 centimeters is heroic. I'm in my early forties and last summer I had the tibias lengthened 4 centimeters using the internal method. The lengthening phase was completed by the end of August. There is a mild but continuous infection in my right leg that I keep under control with antibiotics.  However, judging by the X-rays the regeneration is excellent and the new bone is forming really fast. But naturally I would like to have the internal rod removed as quickly as possible in order to be able to kill off the infection completely. Does anyone have an idea how soon this could be done?

Hey Everybody!

I'm new to this post and it looks like I may be the only girl!  Are tehre any other women out there looking into LL?

Current Height: 5' 3.5"
Future Desired Height: 5' 7"
Where:  Huh???
When: Huh?Huh?
How:  Prefer internal methods

I posted a long reply to the administrator's question about our reasons for wanting LL, so check it out.  But I just wanted to say, that on one of these psots one of you said that while standing, your fingertips generally should reach mid-thigh.  Well that is what I have found to be acceptable, even in women.  I look at pictures of "beautiful" people and even if a woman is short, if her arms are rather long or at least proportional, she does not appear as short in pictures.

Well, I am considered pretty and other than having gained too much weight over the last decade, I still have a smokin figure, but I look even shorter than I am in pictures, because my arms are short proportionally.  My fingertips only reach the crease of where my hip meets my thigh.  I'd like to gain an inch or two on my arm length in a ddition to gaining 3-4 inches in height.

Any thoughts anyone?

Doctors like Professor Mitkovic have experience of arm lengthening, but I understand it should not be done at the same time as LL. CBick66 might know more Smiley

Well I can't speak from experience but I did ask him about my arms since I am also considering doing my arms. It is available and the healing period is shorter then healing on the legs which is good. The only question is how far your willing to go to acheive that perfect proportion again.

Do you mind me asking why you would want 5 inches, when you are already 5,8?
