How I grow my height? I am 21 now

How I grow my height? I am 21 now

Leg lengthening surg: At 21, your growth plates are sealed and thus vertical growth is no longer occurring. The only option at this point would be to have a leg-lengthening surgery--a gruesome procedure but can add a few inches. Keep your body proportionate/good healthy wt--good things come in small packages. If you are not happy with yourself, consult doc for eval. I am pretty sure u r taller than i. Good luck.

I am 21 years old can I still grow my height?

I am 21 years old can I still grow my height?

No: The potential additional length anyone can expect depends on areas in the long bones (arms, legs, fingers)called growth plates. This is where growth occurs and an active open growth plate means more growth is possible. An x-ray of the hands & wrists can be evaluated for bone maturity since there are many growth centers to see. If your bone maturity is >18yo you are done growing taller.

At 21 I was 5'4, and keep that height. Sudenly, at 34, I notice that, I grow 2 inches more. Is this normal? Even without any stretching exercise, etc?

It could be genetics: Or other unknown environmental factors that can cause this late growth spurt. Follow up with your dr for any concerns. Take care! Http://en. M.Wikipedia. Org/wiki/puberty.

How can I grow my height....?

How can I grow my height....?

Unlikely now: At age 19, your epiphyses are probably closed and you are unlikely to have any more vertical growth. Although being tall is usually a plus for a man, you still have complete control over your muscular development and definition. Most people will be much more impressed with an athletic-looking body regardless of your height. Focus on this, and good luck.

Hi am 24yr and I don't know if I wiil grow in height?

Height: At age 24 all of your growth plates have fused and you will not grow any more. I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news to you.

Hello I am 17 and my height is 1.78m. Will I grow any taller?

May be: Your height is normal. It is not feasible to say if you will grow taller without taking x-rays of your bones to see if your epiphyses have fused.

I am 18. My height 180 cms. I am so lean...How to grow my butt?

I am 18. My height 180 cms. I am so lean...How to grow my butt?

Regular exercise: To grow your butt you must do regular exercise focused on your gluteal muscles. You can try squats and lunges as well as leg press which focus on the gluteal (butt) muscles. Regular resistance training focused on your lower body will do it. Otherwise a butt augmentation which would require surgery and implants.

I'm 112kg my height is 6, 6.I want to grow my penic up to 8, 9 inc?

See your doctor: Most penis shaft growth ends during puberty, so its' unlikely to grow much longer at this age. If you have cosmetic concerns start by discussing with your primary doctor, who may refer you to a psychologist, psychiatrist, counselor, plastic surgeon, or urologist. Keep in mind that any surgical procedure, supplement, or apparatus used to attempt to enlarge your penis has risks.

Iam 21. My growth plates r closed iguess. But my spine can still grow right? And add few inches to my height?

Iam 21. My growth plates r closed iguess. But my spine can still grow right? And add few inches to my height?

Not likely...: By 21 years of age most human beings have reached their adult height. It is not likely your spine is going to take off on it's own and grow "a few inches" while the rest of your bones stay the same! Not to worry. Physical height won't hold you back unless you're dead set on being a pro basketball player!

Hello, I'm 17 years old, I'm a boy and I'm only 155 CM height, can I still grow until 21 years old, and how much? Please answer. Thank you.

Possible: It depends on genetics and parental height, as well as your level of maturity, called Sexual Maturity Rating. Since you are under 18, you would want to share this info with your parents and discuss with them too. You have not provided a lot of info I would need to answer it fully.

You're done: Hi. How tall are your parents? By age 21, normal males have fused their bone growth plates, and cannot grow taller. You can have hand X-rays for bone age done to determine if your growth plates are closed and if your bone age, therefore, is consistent with your chronological age. But, playing the odds, you're done growing.

Accept your size: At 21 your growth centers are most likely closed ; no further growth is possible. If your growth centers are open (xray of hand can tell) you might grow some, but most growth centers close at 17 in females so this is unlikely. There is no magic exercise or diet to grow taller.

Can I grow my height after 20?

You can't: As by then the growth plates on the bone are usually fused. If someone keeps growing after that then they need to be investigated for conditions such as acromegaly

How to grow more height quickly?

Can't be done: Get a bone age study. If bones not fused, then good nutrition, exercise & enough sleep will allow you to grow to your potential. If you're exceptionally short & bones aren't fused, a pediatric endocrinologist might offer you growth hormone. But neither of these situations is "quick". It doesn't work that way, most likely not at your age when bones are fused.

Is possible to grow height after 30years?

Usually not: The growth plate of the long bones in the body are closed at age 30 and further growth in height is unlikely. However, there are many that grow in circumference after the age of thirty.
