6ft to 6ft 2 is the ideal height, but Ideally I'd take 6ft 1

Just settle for 180cm.  Why risk it? I have never met anyone who is 5'11" and dissatisfied with his height.  The only exception are those who play basketball.

You'd be 6 with shoes on.  It's perfect.

Honestly? Its because of the hassle. If this was some easy thing I probably would settle for one procedure and be 5 ft 9 . Do 2 1/2 inches. Save a lot of money and a year of rehab.

But it aint. Its busting your legs........TWICE. So I am going to make damn sure I make it worth my while for the $$$$ and effort we put in.

Its 50 grand and 2 years of my life. Maybe 60 grand by time I go through with the procedures.

I am doing 3 inches both. 7.5 cm is considered the upper limit of safe. I will make sure I am physically and emotionally prepared before I move forward.

So I should end up 6ft 1/2 inch or if I tweak it one more CM end up 6ft 1

It's really depends on where you're from though, doesn't it? Part of my fam is Southeast Asian and, when I was a kid, I distinctly remember an aunt saying how tall some cousin was because he was "over 170cm"! This makes Sweden's stories sound like he really is from the Land of The Giants

Here in LA, with all the "The Slash People" (every waiter actually an Waiter/Actor and every bartender a Model/Bartender), you meet all kinds of 5'10" and 5'11" guys who long for a little more.  Despite the success of the Tom Cruise types, I think every one of these guys dreams of being the big athletic superhero action star with the Adonis body.

Personally, my height dreams gradually diminished as my pro sports fantasies went from playing center for the Lakers to linebacker/running back for the Raiders to reality: so in my life, "perfect height" went from 7'5" to 6'10" to 6'7" to now where I realistically (with a good surgeon, tons of work, and some luck) hope to be 5'8 1/2" (starting from 5'5 1/2" now). 

And yes, even as a 12 year old, I knew my fantasy heights would have required some sort of tumor in my pituitary gland.

@ bifaker & chaz

You guys are both right. After being short for most of our lives we know that just being average of a bit below avergae height would be enough.

However, if we are going to break our legs, why not make the most out of it providing the body's limit and proportions allow it. How good is it to be taller than average when u have put up with being short for so long. The temptation is there and i can only expect most to take it.

I know . I am 5ft 6 1/2 . I could do 2 inches on both and be 5ft 10  1/2 . But if I am going to do that........then jesus make it 3 inches and go for 6ft 1/2 or even add an extra cm to round it up to 6ft 1

This is the conclusion I came to. Do the maximum we can without our arms looking  short in comparison and the maximum our muscles and nerves can safely do.

5ft11-6ft2 is a good range of height. There is no such thing at a perfect height...

Shorty 5' 4"

My opinion is 6' is too tall if I had it my way 5' 9"-5' 10" will be ideal but then again I'm only 5' 4". I think this question depends on your current height.

It seems to me like 60% of affluent young adults/teens are over 180CM these days.  Being short probably makes it seem like more people are that tall than really are.  If a 5'10 person told me they were 6'0, I probably would believe them because I can't really tell the difference from my vantage point.

Yes, believe me, there are lots of dudes wondering around lying about their heights. Most of them either take their shoes height or morning height which of course make so many people over 6ft nowadays. A friend of mine who is 5ft11.25 in the morning and more or less than 5ft11 in the afternoon always tell everyone that he is 6ft. Of course no one try to argue or even give a shi* since 5ft11 and 6ft is like 1 inch difference. But genuine 6ft+ guys will be really tall and big I think.

6'1" to me is the perfect height for everyday life - tall, aesthetic, ideal model height, doesn't stick out too much, still not too hard to build bulk.  I'm pretty sure if you polled every female in America, you'd get a number around 6'1" as the ideal height. 

However, many men want height as purposes to intimidate other men (I don't get it, but to each their own) and to be immune to trolling on internet forums.   For these purposes, the taller the better.

Perfection is a concept that will always be just out of reach with regards to image, because a person's ideal self will change, especially when they experience a large environmental shift.

Perhaps a survey of people or archival research of diaries would yield a small qualitative account of people's pre-LL desired height and post-LL desired height; of course its confounded as it is single sample post-test only. However, that kind of approach to determining people's ideals would be better suited than personal statements of what is and what is not.

That would definitely make for a neat and worthwhile thread. Also, great commentary about the idea of attaining perfection. Insecurities come from comparison, and one will certainly not stop comparing one's self to others post LL.
