How to increase height of a 21 year girl?

Make a taller image: Since a 21 year-old woman cannot increase her body's height anymore (her growth plates have fused), she must work on presenting a taller image. Expressing confidence and good leadership skills, standing with a straight posture, walking gracefully, wearing heels, wearing clothing with vertical stripes, and using other wardrobe techniques can all make a woman seem taller. ...Read more

Is it possible to increase height for a 17 year old male because there are documents that suggest it's possible. Is there exercises that might help?

No: If your growth plates are no longer open, growth is over. Typically by the time a boy is 17, the growth plates are near complete fusion. There are no height enhancing exercises. If a 17 year old boy has delayed puberty there may be some growth potential left as the biological age would be younger than 17. ...Read more

Unlikely to happen: Some kids continue to grow taller into their late teens or rarely early twenties but only when their bone maturity lags behind their age. If the growth centers of the long bones have fused, you cannot grow taller. A single x-ray of the wrist ; hand can yield a bone maturity.If delayed he'll grow more. Most have reached bony maturity at 17 and are done.No pills would make a difference. ...Read more

Too late: By age 21 years it is too late to use hormones to increase your height because your growth plates on your long bones are closed. The only thing that might work would be surgery to increase the length of your leg bones. I am not even sure if that will work at your age. You can see an orthopedic surgeon for a consult. ...Read more
