Hello everyone, 

A little update about myself. I've not been posting to this forum for about two years now. Last time I was here, I was going to save up money and come back when my LL journey started. I ended up with a really hot girlfriend and the LL procedure didn't feel like it was worth it because I had what I wanted and I loved her. We have since broken up and yea lol getting taller seems like something I would want to do again but I have no time.  I graduated medical school last year with my M.D. and I'm currently in my Internal Medicine residency in California so I don't think i will have any time for a LL procedure soon.

Now, we all have seen posts about silicon foot implants, lipo infusion fillers etc...   I personally would never do either of those.   BUT, we have see the dermal fillers used successfully for women to create a pad for walking in heels.

Of course, these are not permanent, but there IS in fact a permanent dermal filler called Artefill.

http://www.artefill.com/

A quick summary. Artefill is used for the same reasons regular fillers are used, except that it is permanent. What is it? Artefill is very popular. It's basically microspheres called PMMA injected along with a temporary filler. The filler will be resorbed by your body, but the PMMA beads will stimulate your body to create its own collagen and it does its job very well. And the PMMA beads themselves although tiny will NEVER be resorbed no matter what. Most doctors/websites will say artefill lasts 5 years, but that is because the product itself has not been around long enough so they can't really claim that it lasts longer. I can personally attest to that fact. I had artefill injected to even my nose out and it has been 3 years with no touch ups needed and still very strong. The plastic surgeon that injected me told me it will be with me for the rest of my life.  I have had zero adverse affects from artefill. The product does not shift.

Dr. Rajani in Oregan, USA does a very good job explaining how artefill works. There is an animation about 1 min into this video.

Now what if artefill was used for the Balls of the feet like in the videos posted above for women to releive pain from heels,  but instead of the ballsof the feel, we inject the heel of the foot to increase height.  I personally have rigid pes planus. In other words, I am severely flat footed and this would help with that problem also cosmetically. Functionally I have no idea. Height gain yes for sure. How much height gain? who knows

I paid 800$ for one vial of artefill for my nose, some places charge more up to 1.2k we'll say 1k average  . Some patients have as many as 8 in their face for a non-surgical face lift or non-surgical rhinoplasty. Lets say I inject 4 vials in each heel.

Now we don't know how much height gain we will see, but we can speculate.



in your opinions, is this VIABLE?

WOULD you guys pay 8k (4 vials in each heel) for a permanent 2 cm increase?

I can just imagine just one jump on those artefill and they could turn into pancakefill.
Pressure on the face is quite different than those under the feet sustaining x-amount of pounds every day; unless you're a boxer

 Cool

Sometimes, you have to take a leap of faith.  The trust part comes later.

Of course,  good point.  I thought of that also.

 And although there has been no mention about any filler shifting in the feet, we can't conclude they they do not shift. In fact they most likely do.  We would need to do a little more research for that in looking up some of these womens experiences. One would think that the pressure these women put on the balls of their feet for their heels, are far greater than an injection in the heel just because of less surface area on the balls.

There are much much cheaper forms of the PMMA product without the artefill brand on the internet such as

http://www.acquafiller.com/acquafiller-dermal-filler-permanent-pmma-30-2cc/

The reviews SEEM legit. Wouldn't know for sure, but it is so tempting to buy and try.

However, there is one thing I did not think of that you made me realize Man-of-steel and that is jumping or any athletic activity.  I am very active and super athletic. If I got something like this done then every time I take a jump shot or sprint, I would have a thought in my head about whether this action can potentially pancake my filler lol. And i'm not sure I want that. Even if mechanically it doesn't impede my physical ability, mentally it would

I'm interested in this if you can still jump without it feeling weird and pancaking.

Thanks
