No surgery: Any surgery may have a complications /side effects. To make legs longer require very complicated intervention with installment metallic device what have to stay for months and restrict your usual activity during and after intervention. This create another set of complications. Please, accept your hight and enjoy life without any complications/ side effects.

See orthopedics: leg lengthening relies on the natural healing process of surgically controlled broken bone, by applying slow steady traction of the tissues causing them to grow, the new bone first start as fiber then slowly turn into bone Mainly used for complicated fractures and unequal legs. the patient need to be nicotine free for the new bone to grow and accept lengthy treatment and rehabilitation
