All of my closest friends are well over 6 foot and it makes me feel insecure around them. Leg-lengthening is a life-saver because I was depressed about not growing taller when I hit my adult years. I haven't grown since I was around 15-16.

I wana make things perfect for her even if tht means undergoing LL. . Thats my main reason. . Plus it would increase my confidence exponentially.

I went with "to make myself more attractive to the opposite sex. " I'm sure I've gotten turned down because of my height.  I'm very good looking with an awesome personality and an advanced degree in the US.  I can't think of any other reason to turn me down besides my height.

Also, being taller definitely would increase my confidence significantly.

- overall look good in clothing
- increase my chances of attracting women

It can be seen as a stupid answer, but my answer is: to feel not a "different person".  It is sad, but I have answered onestly. . .

It's not an "S"...

My case is simply the same scenario as Apotheosis: I never felt I should be a bit more than 173cm,but always felt like I should be +180cm. Tis is due to my very long torso and very wide wingspan, not to mention I have large shoulders and muscular.

All the more reason for my plans to lengthen for 7cm max.

I'm in your same shoes I'm 5' 4" and I'm always the shortest I hate looking up to everyone I speak to.  I want to be at least 5' 7" to build my confidence I hate looking down all the time because of my height.  Im often told I'm very attractive but just too short.  Once I become 5' 7" I feel like life will be so much greater for me it will also boast my self-esteem up.
